How can we not listen to somebody who says that ‘quiet is a think-tank of the soul’?
From the blurb on the podcast: “Silence is an endangered species, says Gordon Hempton. He defines real quiet as presence — not an absence of sound, but an absence of noise. The Earth, as he knows it, is a “solar-powered jukebox.” Quiet is a “think tank of the soul.” We take in the world through his ears.”
