The Value of Silence

keep-calm-and-stay-quietI keep promising to write a post on the value of silence, but it just hasn’t happened, yet. I still want to, as I have a lot to say about the topic (perhaps that’s a bit ironic…), but, in the meantime, please enjoy this lovely article from Psychology Today. It sums up a lot of what I will say, if I ever really get around to writing about it.

“In order for the sounds of life to have meaning, we need to consume our minimum daily requirement of silence.”

~ Galen Guengerich, Ph.D., Psychology Today

As an interesting side note, it was really difficult for me to find an image for this post. When you google “silence” or “quiet” most of the images that come up are really quite loud.
