IF you have nothing to say - DON'T
I guess you've noticed I've been pretty quiet lately. Unusual for me. Well, I just haven't had anything to say!
That reminds me of 1985 when my son had just returned from Europe for the first time. He had backpacked all over.
He Ended up in Greece where he worked as a disc jockey to get enough money to get back to London to fly home. I wanted to know his impressions - the one that came to his mind first.
I thought it would be some grand cathedral or city or.........girl he met. But no, he said, "You know Mom, the people I met and observed didn't talk unless they had something to say." Wow, what did he mean? He continued, "You know all those people here, meaning the USA, who talk just to fill the void and to be heard".
I've never ever forgotten those words of wisdom.
So, I'll work back into it, but for the time being, I'll just be quiet a little longer.
