Vibrant Silence: An Explanation

Who would have thought it would be so hard to come up with a name and address for a blog?

After thinking about a zillion different possibilities, I came up with the vibrant silence idea.
It's always been one of my favorite scriptures (1 Kings 19:11-12):

"Come out," he called, "and stand on the mountain before Yahweh." And lo, Yahweh passed by. There was a great and mighty wind, splitting mountains and shattering rocks by the power of Yaweh; but Yahweh was not in the wind. After the wind - an earthquake; but Yahweh was not in the earthquake. After the earthquake - fire; but Yahweh was not in the fire. And after the fire - a vibrant silence."

It just seems fitting that this is a quiet place to post thoughts, somewhere to get away from all the noise - a place to listen to the still small voice in my head. And as E.M. forster put it, "How do I know what I think until I see what I say?"

Well, enough of the waxing poetic...time to go to bed!

'Night, all. :)
