When You Say Nothing At All
I’ve come to a painful realization about myself. I can say an awful lot without saying anything at all. Too often, I blog about everything but what I’m really thinking.
I share a funny story. I show you all my mad crocheting skills.
We live in a controversial world and I’m a weenie. I was an extremely reluctant blogger to begin with. I would’ve been fine spending the rest of my life as a mute wallflower.
But the truth is, I do have a voice. Sure, it’s weak and pathetic right now. It needs exercise and a healthy diet before it can sound good in a bikini. I guess what I’m saying is: I will begin peppering my say nothing posts with more say something ones. Just try not to laugh too hard at my tan lines.

“No man means all he says, and yet very few say all they mean, for words are slippery and thought is viscous.” – Henry B. Adams
“Half the world is composed of people who have something to say and can’t, and the other half who have nothing to say and keep on saying it.” – Robert Frost
