Silence

” The self-described “Sound Tracker” is now in a race to edit his life’s work before he loses more of his hearing.” – Eugene Oregon, reporting for NPR

You, who found these silent spaces.

and catalouged that which enhanced the quiet by breaking it.

You who declared the sacred where the sounds all faded away.

 

What sadistic genie gives this dark twist to your deepest wish.

As all the things you have heard migrate from cochlear experience

into fading memories…

Do you wonder what the last sound you will hear will be?

Hamlet, as he faded, told Horatio

All is silence.

I'm not convinced that the things I do define who I am... I'm not sure that the roles I fufill tell the whole picture of who I am. But this stuff isn't wholly irrelevant either. If you care about the things I do, and the roles I fill, the following are true: I'm a Christ-following father, and Husband; A special Education Teacher and a friend; A son who loves the outdoors, a thinker who indulges in too much pop culture; I'm fairly left wing on many issues and cautiously embrace labels such as emergent and post-modern. If you'd like a list a bit more specific of what I believe check out my post: https://jeffsdeepthoughts.wordpress.com/2008/01/27/what-i-believe/
