2019 ended with a contemplative look at the importance of silence at a breakfast gathering of Creative Mornings Montreal.

“…if you let our world have its way with your mind, your executive function will only rarely, if ever, be disengaged.  A lot of other brain functions, in particular, those associations that can lead to the Aha moments of creativity, will be just as rare.  We are wired to thrive in silence and we should strive to have some every day.”

May the first year of the new decade contain many moments of beneficial silence.
