A key lesson: trust and reliance in things even when they're not immediately present. I must learn this. I am learning this almost despite myself.
The Red Balloon is a movie without words, yet it is not a silent film.
On a related note, I want to also begin feeling the gravity and weight and sensuality of silence--to give it a near monastic value--as in Bach's era. Not to hear in it an absence, the absence of noise, but an underlying potency, an inaudible but soulful resonance always there.
