There are different kinds of silences. The silence of falling snow. Silence of boredom. Awkward silence. Silence of reflection.
Then there is that comfortable, confident silence between two people that’s rare and special.
If you have that with someone, do all you can to keep them close.
PS. My other favourite French word is ‘champignon’ because it makes my favourite vegetable sound like, well, little champions.
