It seems we have become uncomfortable with silence. We walk through the world, always cell phone in hand. Always iPods turned up and conversation tuned out. The never-ending buzz of radio pundits, celebrity gossip and other mindless media deadens the senses and hinders thought. Relaxed, meditative contemplation cannot be had amid this electronic overload.
