Just another reason why a)

Just another reason why a) maureeen should blog more, and b) why I should read it more often. re-creating In this state of mind m more than usually receptive to Ursula Franklis talk about silence as a common good and as something other than merely absence of sound. I like her characterizing silence as an enabling environment. Among the things it enables is the possibility of discovering and attending to ons own thoughts. Is interesting, too, to think of it as a kind of space, an opening for what Franklin calls ""the unprogrammed and the unprogrammable not a bad description of what I hope to encounter when writing a poem."
