Emmy Lou, Guru? Who Knew?

Ooo.  (Had to throw that in there.)

“Silence is the Voice of God.”

A lyric by Emmy Lou Harris.  One that struck me even after 10 or 12 songs, a slight rain delay and a couple (okay, make it Two More) bottles of wine (only Emmy Lou Harris fans will get that reference.  All others, google it!)  A lyric sung by a woman with a voice like a lover’s whisper in your ear.  A woman’s whose life has been filled with music and who sings of the blessings the universe bestowed on her through children.  This woman wrote that “silence is the voice of God.”

Really, can there be a single note more beautiful that the enveloping tone of quiet?
