Silence born of boredom


Only a married couple can ignore each other this totally ...

Switching to autopilot whilst I galivant around southern Tasmania for 10 days, returning Monday 5th October.

I'm not certain whether cell phones prolong marriages or hasten their demise.

There is something nice about this photograph with the other pair in the window... "mirroring them" but they look like they are talking....

On the flip side though, perhaps to sit in silence is not a bad thing.... the fact that two people can sit, and enjoy one anothers company without speaking... just "being" is great. With a stranger it is awkward, with a partner it is a form of meditation. It is like being with another part of you. It is like being all on your own, being with a soulmate..... maybe?

Are they really ignoring or simply being calm in each other's company ... I sometimes think about that when I am dining with my husband ... no need to talk the silence is comfortable and comforting ... our 35th wedding anniversay on Monday :-)

I agree with Joan. Sometimes we don't need to talk but just be in happy silence together. The aura of one envelopes the other and we feel as one.
