BOOKS ....... FREE STORIES ....... TALES OF TAM YS ....... ARCHIVE ....... EDITING ....... SARAH

gentle silence

One of these days I will talk about what it's like being a deeply shy and uncertain person who feels called to write for an audience. But not tonight.

(with apologies for the deleted post.)


  1. your words resonate with this gentle poet from a different century
    "Hope is the thing with feathers
    that perches in the soul..."
    Emily Dickinson
    & reading "Hope in the Dark" by Rebecca Solnit, stories, art, poetry, music these are all helping us understand, be aware and take a stand for a peaceful revolution is in the air to protect our sacred earth, it may take more than our lifetimes to achieve but love will find the way

  2. A beautiful story, Sarah, even if it is unedited and raw. I'm trying to make my own pockets of velvet darkness, because I know how necessary it is, and your story only confirms it all the more. Thank you.

  3. thank you for the story. i have been crying a lot, and wondering... it is hard not to be discouraged, to lose faith.

    also, "they are our consequence."---indeed.

    here's hoping for that "long green peace that comes after", whether i live to see it or not.

  4. Thank you lovely ladies for your kind words. I have been struggling with myself all afternoon, wanting to take this post down. We'll see what I can bear in the morning (or if I even make it through the night without waking and deleting it by moonlight!)
