You can be a silent witness, which means silence itself can become a way of communication. There is so much in silence.  There is an archeology of silence.  There is a geography of silence.  There is a theology of silence.  There is a history of silence.  Silence is universal and you can work within it, within its own parameters and its own context, and make that silence into a testimony.  Job was silent after he lost his children and everything, his fortune and his health. Job, for seven days and seven nights he was silent, and his three friends who came to visit him were also silent.  That must have been a powerful silence, a brilliant silence.  You see, silence itself can be testimony and I was waiting for ten years, really, but it wasn’t the intention.  My intention simply was to be sure that the words I would use are the proper words.  I was afraid of language.
