Reveal...

Writing is a form of communication.
Communication is revealing.
If everyone already knew... everything...
what a deafeningly quiet world it would be.

Is this in response to my comment on your previous post???????

Memory would disallow "remembering everything" and we'd be all back to square one again...

Mick - I wrote this in my notebook a couple of weeks ago, so no... I just thought it had a good follow/feel to the last post. Besides, I was getting tired of seeing "slut" everytime I looked here...:)

Communication truly is one of the hardest things to do well, in any form or forum. You do it well.
Sometimes the silence is deafening, and sometimes it's the clamor.

Reminds me that I really must learn to shut up sometimes, because I am quiet when perhaps I shouldn't be, and a loquacious blithering doofus when it might behoove me to not say anything at all.

Jean said...

Larry - thanks, dear man... thought you might have had second thoughts after the previous post.

Erica - please don't be too quiet too often... you are always worth listening to.

kdzu said...

I have great respect for women who know when to be a slut, or not.
And those with the brains to know themselves and able to express it, and accept it are unutterably sexy.

I second the earlier amen pertaining to the wisdom of your post.

Jean said...

Larry - someday, I hope I can give you a really big hug!

EotR - it's what you do, dear lady.

I am a strange person at time Jean, I enjoy deafening quiet....I want to hear a pin drop, and I turn off my brain because I just don't want to learn anything. It doesn't last long, but it is wonderful for awhile if it can be accomplished. Not saying I would like for it to be a permanent condition.

That "minimalist" answer cracked me up! Kind'a like when the cartoon guy sez, hey, I know when t'shut up. I always do what folks ask and when they ask me to shut up, i get right on that and shut right up! Yup! No more talking fer me. I just clam right up and you'll never hear another peep out'a me. Why, I'll be so quiet you'll wonder if I'm even here and I won't even make any sounds. I won't bark like a dog, or meow like a cat. Won't make rude noises with whatever body parts. Nope! Not a sound. Quiet as a mouse, but, I won't even squeak, either.

OK, y'all know what I mean, eh?
Obviously you haven't run out of writting ideas, either.
Glad yer creative juices are still running hot!

Jean said...

Nea - quiet can be at times, indeed, beautiful and welcome.

Berry - ha... my poetry can be concise, but the other stuff... well, you know!

zonker said...

I'm so concise that I can go weeks without any new posts cluttering up my site. Pretty sweet, no?

Jean said...

zonker - I've noticed that... and it seems that some of your blogger buddies keep after you. I may have to add myself to the list of reminder-ers!
