Pledge “silent-for-a-day”

More details
I am intrigued by the amount of talking we do, by how that impacts our lives and our worlds, and what can be learned by adhering to silence for 24 straight hours, once a month. I have created a "Silent Day Project" blog at, and will compile the experiences and reflections of all project participants. I ask that you spend 24 contiguous hours of silence every month for six months. You can pick any days you like, and the days can start at any time, so long as the silent day lasts 24 full hours, and you remain silent the entire time.
