Listen to the wind whispering and cicadas beating their electric buzz.....

 

 

Have you really noticed it really isn't so silent after all?

Yeah, yeah! Taking that meditation outside lends itself to some interesting problems when a whirly fly buzzezzz in and lands straight on your nose. Can you feel the tingle now?
 
Crap!
 
That age old dilemna.
 
To swat or not swat!
 
Fine! 
 
(Wiggle my nose)
 
I'll let it zip about my ears. 
 
It flits ever closer with its winged breezy touch sending shivers to my skin.
 
Crap!

Thinking about that fly. 
 
Who knows where it's been?
 
Bullshit ego making up a story not worth telling.

A breeze of fresh air blows away the misty criticism.
 
Let it fly!

with that kind of analogy wouldn't it follow that the universe is only the brain of a much larger entity?

Silence can be a valuable descriptor. The old sportcaster Vin Scully really knew how to use it. His broadcasting skills for the Los Angeles Dodgers are legendary. Nobody called a game like old Vin.
