A fast from words

To our good friends–

Yesterday I took a fast from words: no speaking them; no hearing them; no reading; no writing; and hardest of all, no thinking them. When I first started, as I was going to bed Friday night, there was fire! from 1 am till about 5 am. Images, sounds, movements came flying. It seemed that the words had been getting in the way: in the way of G*d and people and the universe. There is certainly more out there to meet than words, and getting them out of the way opened the floodgates for this fire.
