    I've written a lot about white space & negative space as it fascinates me. Yes, the unsaid but sometimes still known and realised feelings and words that need not be said too.

    a wind has also shaped

    The wind is its own white space and more! Sometimes silent, sometimes a whisper, sometimes a roar, but always leaving negative or white space behind it.
