Photography Challenge: Silence

Silence
Rustic Cabin in the Shenandoah National Park

This week’s photo challenge is simply…Silence.

I took the photograph above on one of my silent get-a-ways.

Forever an introvert, I am drawn to silence.

These are just a few of my favorite sounds of silence…

Quiet mornings with coffee in hand…

In my hammock, all is silent, save the cicada and birds overhead…

Lying down under a blanket of stars…summer’s breath upon my skin…

A long Winter’s walk…brown leaves scattering…

My feet in sand and the ocean nearby…

and so much more…

Silence, the coward’s stamp of approval upon the wrong they choose to ignore.

“First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.”

Pastor Martin Niemöller (1892–1984)

Now more than ever, we must open our mouths.

Repeat after me…  I. will. not. keep. my. mouth. shut!
