Learn to be quiet just as you learn to talk, because if talking guides you, being quiet protects you. By being quiet, you attain two characteristics: you are able to take knowledge from those more knowledgeable than you and you are able to repel the ignorance of those more ignorant than you.
“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more”
— George Gordon Byron
Stalk emerges from the tustled, mossy undergrowth and peering through transparent white light a green hue, gentle colour. Somehow in this solitude, in these abyssal depths we are yet colour of leaf, shimmer between twilight. Our captures, witness as we prepare to accept this ambient dawn, slowly discovering fondness in wistful creation.
