“We’ve reached a time in human history when our global environmental crisis requires that we make permanent life-style changes. More than ever before, we need to fall back in love with the land. Silence is our meeting place.” —excerpt from Gordon’s Book

This was an amazing interview I heard last weekend. We do need to find a place for some quiet in our world. We’ve been trained by society to think that lack of input is “wasting time” now. I’ve recently discovered (all too recently) that without quiet I am less productive, more irritable and far less creative. Find some time to carve out some quiet to just listen to whatever is coming into your thoughts.
