And That's All I Have To Say

No, I am not dead. No, I didn't lose my hands in a horrible combine accident. No, I didn't forget how to type. No, I didn't have a stroke. No, I don't have Alzheimer's and not remember thoughts.

Nope. None of that. On the contrary, I have lots of thoughts. Lots of things I'd dearly love to say. Plenty I'd like to type out plain as day for all in the world to read. Yeah, in a perfect world, I'd say exactly what was on my mind and write what my brain is screaming at me.

But, I find that there are times, when I can't do what my impulses tease me to do. I can't say what I'm feeling.

And this is one of those times when, if I allowed my feelings to pour out through my fingers, it would be tantamount to attempting to stuff a bullet back into the barrel of a gun once you've pulled the trigger.

Once I was done and hit, 'Publish Post,' it wouldn't be possible to make it un-done.

So, do not take my silence as lack of interest in my blog or reading yours. I love all of you and your blogs. But, for now...I remain silent because sometimes discretion truly is the better part of valor and the best and only way to put love into action.

Namaste' Till Next Time,
Holly aka She Who Is Learning The Virtue of Silence

This adds more insight into your Silent Sunday posting.

I'm sorry that something, or things have distressed you to the point that being silent is the best choice, and hope that you have an outlet for your frustrations or aggravations.

Like everyone else, I've missed you, and have had you in my thoughts lately, only I was envisioning you having so many enjoyable moments, that you simply didn't have time to write them all down.

I'm sending wishes that circumstances change so that you will feel comfortable, and look forward to sharing your beautiful insights and observations with us once again.

but wouldn't it be nice for a moment to share. If only the aftermath could be avoided. Happy Easter this weekend Holly. I will be attempting diplomacy and silence with my mother in law. Then maybe I won't blog about it, although I'm not sure I will be so good at restraining myself.

Missed you Holly. Hope whatever is going on in your world will settle into balance for you again.

And I more than understand your comment about discretion being the better part of valor. You are one strong lady.

cinner said...
