Modestly scaled flutter book of lightweight kozo papers, hand printed passage from Dillard's book of essays Teaching a Stone to Talk, highlights of gold accent some of the page spreads.

From an ongoing Book in a Week series (not a book every week, but a book conceived, begun and finished in one week's time).

“At a certain point, you say to the woods, to the sea, to the mountains, the world, Now I am ready. Now I will stop and be wholly attentive. You empty yourself and wait, listening.

The silence is not actually suppression: instead, it is all there is.
