“Friendship” from “The Enlightenment of Joshua Inly”

“They would take walks in Joshua’s neighborhood or in the vicinity of the music store where they often met.  Sometimes they talked enthusiastically, surprised and delighted to have someone who, they knew, would immediately understand every word they spoke; other times they would remain speechless, content to look around them at the greening trees, the archipelago of snowflake islands drifting high in the sky, and the baby squirrel, hanging motionless on the trunk of a maple tree, unafraid to remain in place as the pedestrians passed by.  For each of them, this experience of being thoroughly understood was new and welcome.  Both had been used to dwelling in internal silence; now that silence became shared and communal.”  https://www.amazon.com/Enlightenment-Joshua-Inly-Spiritual-Evolution-ebook/dp/B07B8W2MNR
