a year of silence


  What is it that makes us loudly exclaim when we are awestruck by something beautiful?
  I have had no difficulty remaining silent until i attended a recent exhibition of modern Art at the museum. Upon encountering the transcendent work of Vincent, Giorgio de Chirico, Pollock and Rothko, it took every effort of will i could muster to stifle my delighted gasps.
  Not only do these masterpieces make me feel like a 4 foot tall basketball player, they were very nearly the undoing of my year of silence.
