Thought Thursday: Sarah's Sayings

This weeks Thought Thursday is one of Sarah's Sayings. Sarah is sharing an inspirational quote by Joy Harjo.

"Listening is most crucial to writing poetry, to living a good life, to creating, to raising children, and I think these days, it's hard, more and more difficult to find listening places. Even in this world where there's so much interference and so much noise, when you listen to silence, it's so full of everything. It's sort of like how white light is full of every color, and yet it's white light. It's the same thing with silence. Silence is like the white light of sound."

-Joy Harjo
