Silence | Nasser Nishaburi

The absence of words... The absence of sounds... This is the beauty of silence. And in the naked light I saw ten thousand people, maybe more. People talking without speaking. People hearing without listening. People writing songs that voices never share; no one dare disturb the sound of silence. ‘Fools’ said I, ‘You do not know silence like a cancer grows…” – Paul Simon
