The Silence

Some of us are comfortable inwards - at times...and it is the only place, alone, that we can organize the horror and the beauty of the life we have thus far lived.

That periodic "house cleaning" can't be done with others - even with brothers...it is done alone...and then, once the things are in their proper places, we ask the Lord Commander to come and inspect...and walk with us...and encourage us...and tell us why it was all important.

But when that is done, we do not continue walking like ghosts among the living. We enjoy a drink with our brothers, we love our wives, we encourage our children, we sharpen our iron, and we celebrate the life that is gone so easily and so suddenly.
