Nine Images: No Replies

People often will not communicate.

That can manifest itself in many different ways. It may be silence, it may be shouting or whispering insults, it may be not understanding what someone else is trying to say, it may be not replying to reasonable quesions. It may be the result of an impasse, but dare I suggest it is most usually a desire, subconcious or otherwise to avoid even the chance a mind-change?
