Due to circumstances out of my control, I sat in silence some this weekend. I don’t like the quiet. To me, it feels thick with the unspoken, never comfortable and always deafening. I prefer the lovely chatter of the world around me. Small dogs being walked by women on cell phones and couples arguing make the world seem so much closer to me. Silence makes me feel as if I am living outside of humanity, not in it.
This silence brought my mind to you all. I know that, whenever I am alone or lonely, you will always be here to chatter and fill my world with something so much more than silence. I find that my abies, DLs and fellow mommies/sitters/grannies/nannies are always here when I need noise in the quiet.
I think that a change in seasons is always a good time to say thank you to people who mean something. You all mean so much to me. Thanks for helping stay sane with all of your insanity.
Now, it is almost Halloween and I want to suck your blood. Someone humor me PLEASE?
