The art of stillness

"It's really one of our greatest luxuries, the empty space. In many a piece of music, it's the pause or the rest that gives the piece its beauty and its shape. And I know I, as a writer, will often try to include a lot of empty space on the page, so that the reader can complete my thoughts and sentences and so that her imagination has room to breathe."
