"Within each of us there is silence…as vast as the universe. And when we experience that silence, we remember who we are.”
-- Psychotherapist Gunilla Norris
"A Day In The Life of Silence" is a documentary that explores the virtues of silence in whatever form we each prefer it. It's presented mainly in silence, so it not only informs viewers about the subject, but allows them to experience it simultaneously.
The film also has a tie to the coronavirus. With the arrival of the virus, many have been upset by the forced silence of seeking sanctuary. Others have been surprised at the pleasures they found in such silence.
Either way, this piece, using global examples, helps people appreciate the quiet life, understand it, frame what they have learned about it or what they could learn about it.

Even Albert Einstein, here in his favorite slippers, learned a lot from silence, you'll see. So let us know your experiences with silence, both good and bad. And, if you don't mind, we might share them on this site. Quietly, via written word, of course.
“Who tells a finer tale than any of us. Silence does.”
