When I started traveling the rural villages, meeting new friends, I initially often felt uncomfortable when they will meet and sit in silence. Just sit together, no words. I felt there might be some tension between them. Maybe some delicate issue they do not know how to approach. Maybe something they can not talk about in my presence.

With the time passing and learning their communication and pace of life, I accepted that this is part of their being together. Maybe an unverbal communication, maybe just comfortably being with one's self as well as with others. I can see it as a living, traditional, everyday meditation.

    Hi Etan

    Nice photo... But much nicer thoughts....

    Very few people can derive such beautiful meaning of silence...
