Now I don't see myself running off to Antarctica anytime soon, but I do believe that many of us go through our days, without noticing anything, without time to think and ponder. The secret to walking to the South Pole is to put one foot in front of the other, and to do this enough times.

There was an experiment done at a leading institution that showed how many actually find silence so alarming that they would rather apply a painful electrical shock, than continue in the quiet. A simply extraordinary book anyone with a smart-phone or a social media account would do well to read—and heed. He tells us how to find and notice the silence within ourselves, how to use it to gain a new perspective.I thought this was excellent advice, and finding a woodland trail or something similar is now much more preferable to me than walking on pavement or flat earth. Judging from its length, I supposed that it was a fin whale, a cosmopolitan mammal on a lifelong hunt for crabs, krill and fish.

I say the everyday because Kagge himself found silence on a 50+ day hike to the South Pole, a solution that isn't likely on the menu for most of us. He finishes with 'Now and then someone asks me what the most difficult thing about skiing through Antarctica was, and there is no doubt in my mind about the answer: my arrival at the South Pole.Yes, it is incredible to share grand experiences with others, but talking about it may distance us from what is happening. Shutting out the world and fashioning your own silence whenever you run, cook Christmas supper, make love, chat, chop wood, read or travel.
