Talking with a friend and my significant other we came to the conclusion that there are different kinds of silences in Finland:
- Uncomfortable silences, those where you don’t want to say anything so as to not screw up
- “It’s happy to be here” silences
- “I’m working on something” silences
- And the most important ones, silences that just are there. No reason, no message.
There are more, but I can’t remember them now…
