Its amazing how little time I spend in silence.
I know, its not really silent there are cars going by and an occasional bird chirping, but its close enough. Technically, the silence is also being disturbed by the scratching of my pencil on this paper. The loudest sounds I can hear right now are inside my head. My thoughts are hurling themselves around, trying to get out somehow.
I wonder what they would be doing if Id remembered to charge my ipod?
Would the beat have distracted them or would the lyrics have sent them off on a tangent? Would that have been worse than whats happening now? Or better? Or just…different?
What I do know is that if Im going to commit to this blogging thing, and I am, Im going to be spending a lot more time trying to capture those thoughts. If silence sends them sliding out onto the paper – Bring It On!
Now, because I live in a two bedroom apartment with four other people and a dog, I may need to get creative so lets admit up front that I wouldnt be the first mom who locked herself in the bathroom for some peace and quiet.
Creativity doesnt scare me. Wondering what happened to all those thoughts I didnt pay attention to does.
