This line from "Django Jane" has been the symbol of the overarching theme for your humble blogger's past few weeks.-the need for silence. Yes, the issue was addressed here, but it has felt worth reiterating. The fact is, though, it's hard to get away from noise in today's society. So much is at one's fingertips with smartphones and social media. On top of that, there's the hubbub that is contemporary Western life. It takes intentional effort to actually make time for quiet. Even if for a set time five minutes a day, it's well worth it. Put the phone down, turn off the T.V., and just be. As baby steps are best for yours truly, 3 minutes will be the initial goal. Hopefully this sets you on your journey to a quieter place.
