There is a great beauty in silent things.  If the world was muted, what more could we see that we simply can't when there is that vigorous yapping, friendly obnoxious chatter, that humans find so much comfort in. Edward Gorey explores the idea of muting a moment coupled with a sharp eye, wit, and the right amount of self depreciation.
