Sometimes it seems impossible to find a little peace and quiet. Our days are marked by clatter and clamour. We turn on the radio when we get in the car. Everywhere we go, people are chatting on their phones. There’s muzak in the elevator and, no matter whether you live in the city or the burbs, the traffic’s getting worse.
With the endless stream of 24-hour news, emails and social media competing for our attention, it can be a struggle to find even one minute to meditate, or just sit back and stare at the sky.
