Open post, insert silence

Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting with an old friend and talking of many things, including our mutual craving for silence and the challenge of carving out moments of silence in a noisy busy world. On the drive home, I remembered a blog post I did many years ago about silence and decided to repost it.

In lieu of words I'm offering you...

Silence.

How long do you spend reading a single average blog post? Ten seconds? Two minutes? Five minutes? That's how much silence I'm offering you instead of the same time equivalent in words. For example–if two minutes is what you usually spend, then set a timer now for two minutes, or alternatively, check your watch; be silent for the full two minutes. By silent, I mean the no-words-anywhere kind of silent.

Start now. Shhh...
