Hi Emily,

Although you haven’t published your thoughts about Keeping Quiet, is still want to give a reaction to your words.

I think you are exactly right. Young people are raised among too much choice; about important matters such as education, but also about what type of peanutbutter to buy or what picture to post on instagram. This in combination with the constant saying we must be lucky to have so many choices and we have to make them all, makes us stressed and depressed. We never quit or keep quiet. Both The Quiet World and Keeping Quiet are about the connection with nature, with each other and with ourselve that we have lost, we can only restore this by keeping quiet, just for a minute, just for an hour, just for a day
