Someone put it quite nicely when they said "The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had".
I hear people ask "What is a perfect day off for you?" and I must admit that as I age my answer to this question has changed as well. I have a stress packed job and I am learning that with life as it is today even home isn't the safe haven to destress it once was. I find myself...
than thousands words.
When you sit with your loved one and he is not saying anything. Just look at you and trace every inch of yourself with his eyes.
When you are so sad that you don't need him to tell you be okay thousand times but his arms hugging you is comforting enough...
I know I'm with someone who knows and loves me when we can just sit and be, not have to fill the silence with chatter. The long spaces in between conversations can be just as satisfying as the conversation itself. We're thinking our own thoughts, we're looking...
moment, before I sit down to work, that I feel a very keen sense of empathy. It is from this, almost heartbreaking, point that words begin to flow.’ ~ Gabriela Blandy

And three atmospheres,
A whistle from a far.
At the stadium many cheers,
The boy racers car.
A peacefulness so serene,
A sublime feeling unmatched.
From the waters so keen,
My turn to nestle them till hatched.
Here I am a queen on...
Usually it was at night, when we have spent the entire day together talking and talking and done everything, we would just lie together in silence after the goodnight and the night kiss and before the peaceful sleep cuddling..
This I call comfortable silence, not awkward, we...
I believe that a true friend should be able to just sit and comfortably enjoy the silence with you, even appreciate it. If you cant sit in silence, without feeling awkward, its not really a comfortable friendship. And I don't see the worth of friends whom you can't be comfortable...

I had dinner with my brother one evening and he said those words to me..
as we were enjoying the food and the cool wind of the ocean with a soulful song accompanied us, he broke his silence suddenly, expressing his appreciation on the soothing...
...filling every gap with words. Silences are natural pauses, and shouldn't be filled with mindless chatter, just because they're there. I appreciate, if you're friends, when you just don't talk. When you're both thinking, or sitting calmly. It's nice, and shows you're real...
I enjoy comfortable silences.
It didn't strike me until a few weeks ago that not everyone can enjoy comfortable silences, or see value in them.
I prefer to just be, rather than fill the time/space with random chatter for the sake of noise.
I value comfortable silence. When I'm around others and they chatter nonstop about meaningless things, it gets on my last nerve.
I enjoy intelligent conversations but have never felt the need to keep talking and trying to force myself to keep it going out of...
.. it can a great thing if you let it be... usually in groups silence can be awkward, its hardly comfortable... but when I am by myself, I love staying in silence.. it clears all distractions and that can feel freeing if you let it be.
And in the naked light I saw
Ten thousand people maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without speaking
People writing songs that voices never shared
And no one dared
Disturb the sounds of silence.
For some reason many people find silent moments awkward. Well, if nothing needs to be said at that particular time, then-- uh, that's fine with me. I have no problem sitting in silence with a group of people, if anything it can be quite fascinating... (teehee)
This is something I never understood. Why do most people have a constant, incessant need for some noise-making machine to be on in the background, or to be chattering away, or whatever else will fill all possible silences? Why aren't people okay with being quiet with themselves...
I was having brunch with a friend of mine last weekend and at one point during the meal, I looked up and noticed that we hadn't said much for a good stretch of time. I was tempted to break the silence, but she looked so peaceful that I just relaxed and enjoyed that silence...
Sometimes when I'm going through a comfortable silence with someone; I'll think about how nice and quiet things are. Then, I'll make eye contact for a moment to see if I think maybe they're thinking the same thing. Other times I'll just go far away in my...
Have always since very young loved just being quiet, happy and content to sit quietly observe or be deep into my own thoughts... it's a natural sort of meditation...and very comfortable educational as well.
