I am a new-ish blogger and Daily Prompt Virgin so be gentle with me…
I had an instant reaction to this word SILENCE but thought I should check out some of the other posts to see if my idea would fit. I scrolled through 50 or more, looking at their titles, picked one to view at random (well, maybe the words Cats, Dogs, Teeth and Claws grabbed my attention). They had written a great post and also had the same idea as me.
Now I want to count up how many other people posted the Disturbed version of
“Sounds of Silence”?
If you haven’t watched/heard it, crank up your volume, give yourself 5 minutes (or 10, because it is really better to listen the first time with eyes closed).
I’m 68. My son is 44 and he made me sit and listen to this song with him. I judged…harshly at first, but as I sat there, waiting it out, thinking to lecture about trashing one of the anthems of my generation, I got it. I was deeply moved. We both ended up in tears and holding hands!
Talk about a generation bridging song!
Silence, my ass!
