Fabulous Fridays: Silence

Quote(s): “Music and silence combine strongly because music is done with silence, 
and silence is full of music.” - Marcel Marceau

“Let us be silent, that we may hear the whispers of the gods.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

“You will find that silence or very gentle words are the most exquisite revenge for insult.”

"Speak only if what you're about to say is more beautiful than silence." - Arab Proverb

[...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
And no one dared

Disturb the sound of silence...]

Thought: When was the last time you were surrounded by complete silence
aside of bedtime? Have you notice that, due to our daily routine and to modern technology, we
rarely dedicate time to being in complete silence? Think about it, we get up,  go to work;
we listen to radio/cds in our car; we interact with people at the office,
we use ipods, mp3 players, and other devices when we walk, run, or use public transportation; we drive home and listen to music again or talk on on the phone. Later we watch tv and so on...
Next time, try cancelling all sounds; turn your cell phone off, think about your day...
the things you could do better next time, the actions you're proud of, the goals you have for next day, the things that made you smile, etc.  Maybe take a hot bath, but in complete silence; close your eyes and just breathe...
Sometimes you need moments like that more than you think.
Have a super cool weekend!



  1. I have not done this in a while, but I agree, sometimes it is needed. I love to wake up and journal my thoughts or just sit in the bathtub and relax...thanks for reminding me that I need to enjoy silence more often!

  2. It is me again - thanks for entering into my giveaway! I hope you have an amazing week and find some time for some R&R, I did this past weekend and took your advice. I took a 3 hour nap and did a lot of nothing, it was so nice!

  3. Hello! You're welcome, thanks for commenting again on mine. Yes, I myself need to find R&R time more often too, and naps are great! Sleeping in general is... haha. I love the name of your blog, by the way, and your display name OceanDreams. Have a lovely week!


Yes! Put your cursor on that lovely white box and start typing :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!
