Speech is not silver and silence is not gold. Gold is instead the right amount of speech and silence. This is how Martin Kmpchen overturns a popular saying and probes into the meaning of speech and silence beyond clichd thinking. In curt, pointed literary texts the author describes everyday activitieswaking, breathing, greeting, offering praise, remembering, sleeping or listening. He breaks open the thoughtless routine with which we normally carry them out, trying to discover their authentic value. Drawing from the wisdom of Indian and Christian contemplative thought, Kmpchen however firmly relates his texts to our 21st centurys search for a simple, truthful life-style. Printed Pages: 100.
