Hello darkness, my old friend,
I've come to talk with you again,
Because a vision softly creeping,
Left its seeds while I was sleeping,
And the vision that was planted in my brain
Still remains
Within the sound of silence.

In restless dreams I walked alone
Narrow streets of cobblestone,
neath the halo of a street lamp,
I turned my collar to the cold and damp
When my eyes were stabbed by the flash of
A neon light
That split the night
And touched the sound of silence.

And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people, maybe more.
People talking without speaking,
People hearing without listening,
People writing songs that voices never share
And no one deared
Disturb the sound of silence.

Fools said I, you do not know
Silence like a cancer grows.
Hear my words that I might teach you,
Take my arms that I might reach you.
But my words like silent raindrops fell,
And echoed
In the wells of silence.

And the people bowed and prayed
To the neon God they made.
And the sign flashed out its warning,
In the words that it was forming.
And the signs said, the words of the prophets
Are written on the subway walls
And tenement halls.
And whispered in the sounds of silence.

(Simon and Garfunkel)

Hier ist ein wenig Stille eingekehrt, die für mich gerade sehr wichtig ist. Es gibt diese neutrale Zone - vom Abschied zum Neubeginn - die ich sehr geniesse. Innehalten, um weiterzukommen ... die Veränderung wahrnehmen.

Nichtsdestotrotz vermisse ich Euch ... und hoffe, schon bald wieder mehr Worte teilen zu können.

Alles Liebe,



The silence here is very important for me at the moment. It's the neutral zone - from a goodbye to a new beginning - which I enjoy most. Pause, to get ahead ... sense the change.

Nevertheless, I miss you ... and hope to share more words soon.

Lots of love,

  1. Hello, darkness, my old friend...Do you know I grew up listening to country music and didn't discover Simon & Garfunkel until I was almost in college? Any way, that first line always made me want to be able to paint a picture of the comforting midnight blue darkness that I imagined when I heard the song. I hope your goodbye and new beginning squeeze you into a hug for a minute or two before you go along your way. Virtual hugs from me, Ang


Schön, Dich hier zu sehen & DANKE, für Deine umsichtige Wortwahl!


Nice to have you around & THANKS, for your thoughtful words!
