With the Encouragement of MY BEAUTIFUL SISTER (MBS)...

I will begin writing more regularly.

Thank you dear one!

Not too long ago, after fumbling for my keys in my very full purse, I locked myself into my office. And then I sat here.

In silence.

Staring at my computer screen, jaw hanging open, eyelids fluttering shut.

I realized I was tired.

So I did some work for our business, briefly chatted on the phone with the love on my life, and then sat some more.

It's amazing, how sitting in silence, can have such a different effect on a person, depending on the circumstances. Really.

Take, for example, today. After spending an afternoon teaching, engaging with others and pouring out myself so that our fabulous business colleagues can grow and develop their own business, I'm just completely tuckered out. I'm so tired, I can barely keep my eyes open. In fact, my eyebrows are working overtime to pull my lids upward so that I can peek through my lashes in order to verify that what my fingers are typing is in fact showing up correctly on the screen. In this situation, this time is somehow allowing me to get in touch with a loud signal that my body has been apparently trying to tell me - that I should go to bed.

On other days, quiet times allow me to re-energize, calm down, think clearly (which usually involve some form of fitness), reflect, and pray.

What do times of silence and solitude do for you?

I'm curious.

I'm also a bit too fuzzy-headed right now to write anymore. :)

Goodnight dear friend. I hope our journey together is fun!
