Merton as Scribbler

Is Merton’s (or my) scribbling compatible with the Silent Life, which is the title of one of his many books?

Why no reports in his journals – which he himself did not prepare for publication – on his meditation experiences? This is curious, is it not? What was he doing in his hermitage all that time? Scribbling and thinking? I hope not.
