Spending our time untethering the mind, getting the fidgets out, exploring the in-between ideas, and learning kintsugi.

Episode 4, In absence of silence

leave a comment »

Episode 4 of our podcast, Archy and I, is now out. It is titled “Search for quiet“.

This is a photo from a trip to Death Valley in 2009.

The world feels noisier and not simply from the decibels generated by human activity. It is the frenetic pace of modern life. I often think of what Dr. Martin Luther King wrote from Alabama jail in April of 1963 in the context of injustice – “We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” His thoughts also feel apt in the context of the anxiety I feel at times being part of this human network. Escaping to Death Valley is an excellent option, but that offers temporary respite. Lately, I have been searching for everyday quiet. This episode is about how that search looks like, right now.

The extra good thing in this episode is the podcast, “The Wild” by Chris Morgan. Our search for quiet is inspired by these two episodes, “The hunt to find just one square inch of silence” and “The quietest place on earth“, both aired in 2019.
