We need quiet
“Others inspire us, information feeds us, practice improves our performance, but we need quiet time to figure things out, to emerge with new discoveries, to unearth original answers.” ― Ester Buchholz
Of all the seasons, winter seems most linked with quiet; short days, long nights, the silence of snowfall and the calming blank canvas of its whiteness. If you live where it’s cold at this time of year, take advantage of the weather’s call to solitude. Settle in with a good book in a cozy room, sit down with pen and paper to write a letter or a journal entry, or bundle up for a stroll in the winter stillness. Turn off the TV, the smart phone, the iPod; unplug and unwind.
Spring will be here soon enough. Till then, take some time for daydreams.
