Silent Understanding

We all have that one person whom we have a ‘silent understanding’, where silence isn’t a problem, and the lack of words subconsciously forms a deeper connection while in thought. Some of us may have more than one person, or even a ‘silent group’ perhaps, but some one-on-one silent understanding surpasses them all. There’s just something with that one friend, where words aren’t needed to converse, or explain, and the silence, the expressions, the eyes, and even the subtle nods can deliver 30 minutes of conversation in a fraction of that time. This sort of bond, however, relies heavily on the strength of friendship. The person has to know you, what your actions mean, and how you feel, in order to interpret the silence correctly. They have to know you well enough in order to know what to say, what not to say, or to not even speak at all. A silent understanding takes years to master with one person, but once you’ve got it, breaking the silence no longer becomes a necessity.

This is Alex, hoping that the snowflakes don’t ruin your day.
