Since I was in college I have been fascinated by monastic life: monks, monasteries and everything in between.  In an age of noise, here is a quote from mystic Meister Eckhart,

In silence man can most readily preserve his integrity.

As you navigate the end of your week, take a few moments to breathe deeply and enjoy the silence that already exists around you.  Close out a project, organize your work space, or bring closure to something that has been bothering you.  Before and afterwards is the beautiful gift of silence.
