Silence Makes the Music

by Ray Reuter on September 30, 2010

Do you realize what makes music?  It’s the space between the notes.  It’s the quiet time.  A practice I implemented at the beginning of the year — and am recommitting to again — is Daily Quiet Time.  I find just hitting the “pause” button during my day … for just 10-15 minutes … enables me to enhance my focus, gain greater clarity, and refresh my energy.  My music is sweeter because of the spaces, which restores my intention and direction.  “Why am I doing what I am doing?”

“Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.”
— Max Ehrmann, “Desiderata”
