I have laryngitis - again. I had it just over a month ago. Usually I may get it once/season, but twice in one summer? Ugh. It's especially frustrating for one who likes to talk as much as I do.
It's Vacation Bible School this week at our church too. The good part is that others who are on my team are doing amazing and taking charge and going for it! I guess if I had my voice, they wouldn't have this opportunity, because I'd be doing it. Not that it is the reason I lost my voice, but probably a good side-effect...
Anyway, so I've been sitting a lot in silence but my brain is going 24-7. It's amazing how that works, isn't it? It will make me think differently of quiet people - are their brains as noisy as mine? For those quiet people out there reading - I'd love to know.
What causes some to be so quiet and others, like me, to talk so much? I don't realize how much I talk until I can't. Car rides with my family when I can't talk are like a tomb. Dinner table conversation fizzles. So maybe I'm the only one with this need to gab? Maybe others are comfortable enjoying the passing landscape in peace and I interrupt with my endless chatter?
Good questions to ask - maybe when I have my voice back I'll ask all these questions, and continue to do my role in the universe of filling the space between the words.
