The Silent Garden is self-explanatory. It’s a place where no one speaks, and where you can go for a stroll, sit on a bench, read a book … I wouldn’t go for flowerbeds or fountains but rather for a wilder, untamed kind of place with little trails, old trees, wild plants and maybe a small stream.

Silent Town

focus: silence & deafness, a town run by deaf people

I like silence. Silence isn’t necessarily noiseless but quiet and unexcited. In the book series there is already a Silent Garden and the dot.story features a Silent Garden as well.

And I thought a Silent Town would be great too, a place where you can go and — well, be silent.

Combining being silent with the opportunity to communicate in sign language was the next intriguing thought.
