In Praise of Silence

“...we often misunderstand what quiet means. It doesn’t mean the absence of sound. Some sounds foster silence, like the Gregorian chant that I sang and directed when I lived in a religious order. Some sounds in nature add to the quiet rather than take away from it….My dog doesn’t talk, so we are dedicated to silence on our walk. I consider it a monastic type of meditation and I’m serious about that…”—Thomas Moore, from Nov/Dec 2008 “Spirituality and Health” magazine.
