Music Monday moves with The Sound of Silence

It’s mid-August already! I’m continuing with Simon and Garfunkel for the month.

Paul Simon wrote “The Sound of Silence” when he was only 21 years old. In an interview, he was asked, “How is a 21 year old person thinking about the words in that song?” His reply was, “I have no idea.”

For me, the lyrics are sheer poetry.

In a world where it’s increasingly difficult to “hear” silence, I hope this song puts you in touch with some quiet time, if only for a moment.

Have a wonderful week,

~eden
