Science Says Silence Is Much More Important To Our Brains Than We Think

It turns out that noise pollution has been found to lead to high blood pressure and heart attacks, as well as impairing hearing and overall health.

Just as too much noise can cause stress and tension, research has found that silence has the opposite effect, releasing tension in the brain and body.

Regenerated brain cells may be just a matter of silence

The brain is actively internalizing and evaluating information during silence

Silence relieves stress and tension

Silence replenishes our cognitive resources

It is possible for the brain to restore its finite cognitive resources. According to the attention restoration theory when you are in an environment with lower levels of sensory input the brain can ‘recover’ some of its cognitive abilities. In silence the brain is able to let down its sensory guard and restore some of what has been ‘lost’ through excess noise.

Loíza: The Heart of Puerto Rico’s Black Culture


LOIZA … #PuertoRicanPride … ‘Known as the “Capital of Traditions,” Loíza is the birthplace of Black Puerto Rican music and is where the dance Plena was born. Bomba music and other African-Taino infused food and traditions are commonplace here. Loíza artisans produce the colorful coconut masks displayed at festivals and make the unique Bomba drums.’

A report by Tatyana Hopkins for Black Voices News

Samuel Lind’s two-story wooden home functions as an art gallery and studio. When he’s at home, visitors can view his overwhelming collection of work, which ranges from colorful cartoonish posters for local festivals, to life-like paintings of Black women, to serious life-sized clay and bronze statues depicting African people and deities. Themes of nature and African heritage fill the walls of the studio—and so does the Puerto Rican flag.

Well This Really “Gets My Goat”


‘Has anything ‘got your goat’ lately?’

The Chicago Files

Are you familiar with the old saying, “Got your goat?”  According to “dictionary.com” this is the origin of the phrase:

To make someone annoyed or angry:  “Gavin may seem unflappable, but I know a way to get his goat.”  This expression comes from a tradition in horse racing.  Thought to have a calming effect on high-strung thoroughbreds, a goat was placed in the horse’s stall on the night before the race.  Unscrupulous opponents would then steal the goat in an effort to upset the horse and cause it to lose the race.

This little one certainly got my goat!  I tried and tried to get him to look at me so I could snap a nice little picture of him.  He was having none of it.  I encountered the cute but glutted goat whilst strolling around a Farmers’ Market during my recent trip to L.A.  Smiling, waving, ooohhing and ahhhhing…

In it is summer, and midday, and immortality


Indeed … “appropriated a singular day of eternity. In it is summer, and midday, and immortality. Certainly immortality.”

“He was an art student, and he spent the day at the lake drawing a study of sky and clouds. Nothing else. The grown-ups had little to say after looking at his creation. But I liked the clouds, they were of the cumulus variety, my favorite, eternal wanderers, clean celestial mountains. They’d hung above Lake Hepojarvi for a while that day, and then left. The cardboard painting was placed on top of the sideboard; it soon fell into the crack between the sideboard and the wall. But then—a few years later—I found it; bending some wire into a poker, I pulled it out, along with a thick layer of dust, dead flies of years past, and a green leg from a plastic toy hippo. I took the cardboard picture and thus appropriated a singular day of eternity. In it is summer, and midday, and immortality. Certainly immortality.”
