It’s something great artists use. Every musician, artist, speaker, and poet uses pause. For the majority of us, it’s there to take a breath or form an outline. It’s functional and necessary. This is just ‘pause’.
In the hands of an artist, ‘pause’ is intentional, not functional.
Pause is the absence, the silence, the negative space.
A moment in time created for us to appreciate the art. Space for reflection. It builds anticipation. It enables impact. Used correctly, ‘pause’ is the light revealing the masterpiece. This is ‘Powerful Pause’.
Maybe holidays are just normal pauses.
Maybe they’re not.
