Silence the Noise

The beauty of silence is that you can dream when you’re awake.

Carl-Henrik Monrad-Aas is a strategist, copywriter, poet, and environmentalist who still wonders what he’s going to be when he grows up. In this talk, he reflects on silence and delves into its importance for creativity. He encourages us to make time for our mind to go on long meandering journeys and to let silence speak. Valuable things can be lost in the fire of constant noise.

Editor’s note:

I made this newsletter like I make collages. I cut out different elements, textures, and ideas that stood out to me and pasted it all together.
