not speaking

I stopped speaking on my 27th birthday in 1973....I decided not to speak for one day, as a kind of gift to my community. My girlfriend thought I was doing a nice thing. When I woke the next day, I didn’t see any reason to speak, so I didn’t. When others spoke to me, I mimed that I was being silent. They were thrilled.


  1. I think if people could give up talking for just an hour the world might be a better place.
