This brief excerpt is from my novel in progress titled "Quaker Playboy Leaves Legacy of Confusion."
"When she was a child, Quaker meeting had taught her that silence is not empty. It can be rich as plum cake, and sometimes, sitting between her parents on the plain bench, the silence had warmed her. Uh, huh, her mother had said, distracted, when Perry told her and asked her Is that the Inner Light? but it hadn’t really been light; it was more of a color, as if God had smiled and left something behind."
Take a moment to feel the quality of the silence around you.
