The rest was silence ...

... Today's Today in Literature email includes this from No More Words, Reeve Lindbergh's memoir of here mother, Anne Morrow Lindbergh, who was born on this date in 1906:

She describes how, after a lifetime of writing and engagement, Morrow became increasingly and then almost totally uncommunicative: “Words were central to her life for as long as I have known her, and yet she appears perfectly comfortable without them. She does not miss them. I on the other hand, am at a loss. I am bewildered, confused, absolutely at sea, in my mother’s silence.”
