Frozen Silent – Jan. 19, 2018/Day 19

I think the wonderful lyrics to “Quiet” from Matilda the musical conveys every thought in my head, that I really hope I caught in some way with this photo.  It is rather ironic, however, that the last time I was able to experience pure absolute silence was December 20, 2009.  The next day, toward the end of my 1st cycle of chemo, I developed a severe case of tinnitus in both my ears.  Dr’s said it should pass in a few days, if not a week, and that it was a common side effect.  Well the common side effect has never left and my head is filled with this high to medium high constant fuzzy pitch.  So silence, yeah, it’s not happening.  Still, I am able to appreciate silence.  Perhaps the way Matilda describes it, through these lyrics:

Quiet…
Like silence, but not really silent…
Just that still sort of quiet
Like the sound of a page being turned in a book,
Or a pause in a walk in the woods.

Quiet…
Like silence, but not really silent…
Just that nice kind of quiet,
Like the sound when you lie upside down in your bed.
Just the sound of your heart in your head…

And though the people around me,
Their mouths are still moving,
The words they are forming
Cannot reach me anymore.

And it is quiet…
And I am warm…
Like I’ve sailed
Into the eye of the storm…

Lyrics by Tim Minchin
