The Silent Treatment

I read (and attached below) an excellent article on the inverse of what we usually associate with abusive behavior (acting out)…This article explores the devastating impact of weaponized silence.

As a contemplative on my quiet forested mountainside, I’m well versed in the art of silence. It is from this rooted perspective that I ask - both of myself and others - for direct communication when something needs to be addressed.

This is LOVE in action.

In an age where ghosting has become acceptable, and passive aggressive behavior is commonplace, what are your thoughts on “the silent treatment?”

The Atlantic


To know me is to know that I think in imagery and color first - I am one of 32 Acquired Savants in the world (on the registry). You can read more about my story on my website

I'm adding a new section to my blog posts.

From time to time - perhaps every time - I will explore visuals associated with key the main topic of my blog post.

But here's the kicker...

I will produce the image using generative AI so that I can demonstrate the current state of "thinking" on issues that can be subject to bias and problematic interpretation; or - conversely - instances where the bot gets it right.

I will present the images without my commentary... for now.


According to Midjourney

Note - I've been querying various generative AI tools almost daily for more than a year. I'm excited to begin sharing some of this with you. If you haven't already subscribed to my blog, please do so today! If you find this content interesting, please share!
