Silence is more important than you think

“The role of creative expression, as with the role of critical reflection, is to uncover them, and help us understand them more deeply. And creativity, like thought, takes quiet time and a sense of space to encounter it with our full attention.”
“Reflectivity, Creativity, and the Space for Silence”, by Jane Dawson of St Francis Xavier University

I discuss the role of silence in creative expression over at my blog Uncanny Creativity. Read more about how silence helps be more creative.
