A silent room
and with each moment
a struggle within

Looks like something is about to blow.  I have the silent room struggle going on here too.  Why aren't I happy?

Dear Z, I'm sorry you're dealing with this stuff too. Sadly I'm asking myself that very question.

Happy? Hmmm? Not sure that's the point of a silent room.  R&L ;-)

Right now there is a stupid weed eater going on and on across the street.  Those things should be banned.  I like the silence....I know what you mean Jmac about the point of a silent room....is it meditation?  peace?  lots of different words for happiness.  Foolish Monkey...you are always so WISE!!  Thanks for the inspiring words, MC

Deliciously ambiguous: is the struggle in the room (as a physical space), in the moment (as a shard of time), or in the observer (as a perceiving being)?  Could it be all three?  Are they mutually entailed, one setting off the others. I've known many folks who turn on a TV or radio and leave it on all day, not to watch or listen, but to create a sort of white noise to drown out the silence.  For them, it seems, silence isn't golden, but swollen, with discomfort.

I particularly like the extremely narrow vertical of your painting. It palpably constricts space and heightens the discomfort you so expertly illustrate describe in so few words.

In the rooms wherein we struggle with the semantics of struggling,

rarely silent,

we learn to deal with the silence

outside in the real world
