Silence is Communication

Published by Greg Heffron on

“The process of communication can be beautiful, if we see it in terms of simplicity and precision. Every pause made in the process of speaking becomes a kind of punctuation. Speak, allow space, speak, allow space. It does not have to be a formal and solemn occasion, but it is beautiful that you are not rushing.”
