Item #6

  • Title:Unstated
  • Item Synopsis / Program Notes:

    When words are not clear or not said it doesn’t sound or the sound may not be clear. Silence may bring a lot of meaning. When there is no sounds people may call it silence. It is not actually the absence of something or sounds but it is the presence of everything and it is understood to bring one in contact with one’s own true self. It might also mean a disagreement. People tend to pass over when it cannot be spoken. Silence may also be a gesture to be warned when it is not stated clearly. There are just some things that cannot be put in words. Silence speaks when words can’t.
