Shshhhhhhh

I've always loved words. Lyrics, poetry can move me to tears.  I love a well written sentence.  There are bits of literature that I return to again and again because they evoke such emotion.

I've always wanted that power, that skill.  Motherhood, however, has me almost wanting to forsake the spoken word altogether.  I say things.  I repeat them...for what?  They don't listen.  

I'm attempting a vow of silence.  Some time to listen and think and find a new way. Anyway, I'm tired of the constant disappointment.  I'm going to save my breath for a while.
