Seeking Silence

The Hammock Papers has Thomas Merton's thoughts on silence.

I find myself seeking silence far more than in the past: turning off the radio while in the car, pausing in my work for brief moments of meditation, and settling into a quiet place where I can simply consider what is being overlooked.

The maxim "Silence is golden" is frequently true and yet silence is not always silent. It has an eloquence that connects us even more intensely to the world.
