Silence does not scare me.  It energizes me.  There is nothing more powerful than a shut down without words.  It is dramatic.  It is captivating.  Whether it is used in a play as in the case above, or used in music, or in the visual arts, it causes discomfort for some, worry for others, and startle for yet others.  It is unusual and makes us do a double take because it is not ubiquitous to our ordinary days.
