“Uttering a word is like striking a note on the keyboard of the imagination.” —Ludwig Wittgenstein
You can feel inaudible music in the spaces between the holes punched in piano rolls.
“The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between the notes.”
―Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
We believe that the less a preacher talks, especially about silence, the better one hears the choir.
“After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.”
Whenever words are beating a drum, silence is marching to a different one.
“Music and silence combine strongly because music is done with silence, and silence is full of music.”
So now, with a deep bow, we place our music sheet inside the bench, and step back from the keyboard of the imagination.
“Get away from that piano. You hurtin’ its feelings.”
―Jelly Roll Morton
