Saturday Sounds of Silence

3 Nov

I had a sore throat with a bit of a tickle yesterday. I didn’t think much of ot, but when I made my ritual morning phone call to Mom today, nothing came out but a squeak. I had full blown laryngitis. I rasped out my morning greeting then went about my morning. I went to my writing group at 10, and whispered out my comments and scribbled my notes. I think Mandy and Julia appreciated my muffled commentary and lack of rambling verbosity. (Is that a word?) Julia even commented when I continued to whisper, “You sound sexy.” I proceeded to softly sing, “Happy birthday…Mr. President. Happy Birthday…to you.” Get it? I guess you had to be there. Anyway, my morning, and the rest of the day, for that matter, was very quiet. Thus, the sounds of silence. VERY unusual for me. “But my words like silent raindrops fell…”

      Thanks Carina. A little better today, just can’t talk yet. Maybe a blessing for others.
