The Art of Not Saying Everything…

Posted Dec 14 2008 12:08am

If you, like me, are starting to have those holiday disagreements with your spouse, grab your cup of Earl Grey, and sit for a minute and reflect on these thoughts…  I’m giving myself a good old-fashioned time out, anyone want to join me?

from ON NOT SAYING EVERYTHING by C. Day-Lewis

But when we cease to play explorers

And become settlers, clear before us

Lies the next need – to re-define

The boundary between yours and mine;

Else, one stays prisoner, one goes free.

Each to his own identity

Grown back, shall prove our love’s expression

Purer for this limitation.

Love’s essence, like a poem’s, shall spring

From the not saying everything.
