shhh,it’s a secret

We’ve all been there.

You start the day in a happy, happy mood, but by the time it ends you just want to go home and hide and get away from all the annoying people, talking about gnomes and bees and whatever.

okay, so maybe not gnomes or bees, but…argh,never mind.

(i like gnomes,by the way.so cute)

(garden gnomes)

Anyway, point is..

I read this somewhere.

“A true friend is someone you can sit with on the porch and not say a word, but still walk away feeling like you’ve had the best conversation ever.”

Granted, this is somewhat an…impossiblity.

The Concise Oxford Dictionary of Current English (circa 1960, haha..) defines conversation as talk.

So if you don’t say anything, how can you have a conversation?

Semantics aside, I can think of only one person with whom I can be completely silent, and still feel comfortable with. (Sadly she doesn’t live here…:( )

How many people do you know?

Its so easy to talk,isn’t it.

But its so much harder to just…be…silent.

I used to think that finding someone you could talk to was a challenge.

(I mean, obviously I talk to people, and sometimes I just won’t shut up. )

But there aren’t that many people with whom I’d willingly sit and just talk (and listen). And because I can’t always be with those people, I learn to like the people I AM with, to make life simpler. Hey, if you can’t be with the ones you love, love the ones you’re with, right?

(Maybe less with the naughty overtones)

Lame jokes aside….

silence is a beautiful thing. don’t spoil it by saying something stupid.
