Reflection: The Mythical Beauty of Silence

 

How much silence do you notice in your day?  In your mind? One of the most common complaints about the modern world is the lack of silence, and it’s easy to project a longing onto the past and think: oh, the past had space for silence, and there’s no silence in the modern world.

 

But there’s one constant throughout all of history: people. And there’s nothing silent about people.

 

In today’s reflection, Kathrin poses the question: how do you notice silence?
