Silence

Part of my creative writing class involves visiting the abbey’s retreat lodge and writing for at least three hours. I just got back from that. Around 5:30 we took a shuttle bus from campus over, and after a lively dinner we spent the rest of the evening writing in silence. Nowadays silence is something that just isn’t part of most lives. Unfortunately silence produces some very profound thoughts, which is exactly why we had this session. I was able to think and write so clearly, and sadly I never have an opportunity to blog unencumbered by distracting sounds. Interestingly, participating in Daily Prompts is one of the few times when I write something on a screen that hasn’t already been processed through my mind.
