Talk too much

Posted: August 21, 2010 in Observations

I was just thinking…actually, I do more thinking than anything these days… people around me always ask me “What’s wrong?”  Nothing is wrong… sometimes…not all the time, but sometimes, I just don’t feel like talking.  I actually enjoy silence… with people around me, ofcourse…being silent, too.  If I didn’t have dust allergies, I might consider hanging out in a a library more often.  I’ve heard people say that if you are comfortable enough around someone to be totally silent, then that is a really good thing.  Sometimes people talk to fill the void of beautiful silence, and it is so unecessary.  My kids love to talk…and talk… and talk… and I love my kids more than anything in this world, but I will sometimes just say…”Shhhhhh…let’s just see how long we can all go without talking.”  And, so we play that game that lasts less than 3 minutes.   I just read a post on Facebook about old cartoons… I love old cartoons…you know why?  They Don’t Talk!!!  Tom and Jerry didn’t talk to each other…they just did what cats and mice do…chase each other around…and the background music and sound fx were always super entertaining.  Cartoons today have WAY too much conversation.   When I am home by myself, I very rarely put the TV on…I like the silence.  Maybe it’s becasue I am in the world of people everyday, and everybody has something to say, so when I get home, it’s my place of quiet from the world…I’ve always been known as a talker, but it’s like my mouth is tired now, and it just wants to stay shut and let my fingers do the talking on the keyboard.
