|"All escape routes were cut off. I had to move into my own silence and find out who was in there." Marion Woodman|
The times of waiting in caregiving --- sometimes I feel as if I am waiting to live my own life -- can be valuable times. We can use this time to go into the silence and know ourselves better. Marion Wooman is a Jungian psychologist whose work has impacted me for several decades. Shakespeare suggested that we be true to ourselves. To be true to ourselves requires that we know who we are, and perhaps this is possible only in silence.
