In this month's first Tiny Letter (my bi-monthly newsletter), I'm exploring silence. Sign up here to read more.
On an average Tuesday morning, I woke before the rest of the house. In my office, lights off, only the crickets chirping, I tried my best to find a quiet space. Still and sitting in the overstuffed chair, I focused on my breathing and began sinking into something like meditation. It was a short sinking, and only seconds in, the voices of all the people in all the world on all the news outlets and social media spaces piped up. These were not figurative voices; they were quite literal (which might raise concerns for some). In my defense, and in defense of the prattling voices, it was quite early in the morning and I was riding that liminal space between sleep and extreme hunger. Perhaps it was this sort of slunger that induced the voices to come calling.
