Now to answer the question
I’ve never been one for a lot of idle conversation. I’m not a phone person and I’m not a girl who needs her “girl days” … because of this...I’ve been accused of being secretive, but I think there is a big difference in being secretive and quiet.
To me secretive means someone who withholds vital information from others. I don’t. If you have a critical need to know something…I’d be the first to tell you. But I’m not of the ego to believe everything about my life is so important that I’d bore you with every minute detail of it within the first few minutes of meeting you.
When you’re talking…you can’t be listening or learning.
I learned very young that “Silence Was Golden”…in being quiet one learns a lot about people and life around them. The power of observation leads the mind to greater places and allows room for acceptance, patience, and understanding...even if you don’t agree with an action done.
Most talker’s mistake a quiet person for being stupid and unfeeling…if they took a moment…they’d see that is so far from reality or the truth of the matter. In fact those who observe life tend to be closer and feel the depth of our reality more than those who chat up a storm never silent long enough to know life goes deeper than their ever continuous wagging tongues and surface beliefs.
In silence you will find wisdom.
Those who don’t write might not understand a writer’s head. A true Writers tends to observe a lot and to observe one has to BE QUIET. In that solitude of observation is where writers find inspiration and creativity. It is there, in the silence of the mind that one finds the core of all beliefs and where a writer finds the words to touch this seed of truth within the pages of her book to reach the reader’s emotions.
A talker will never find the twin side of our reality…the wonderful worlds in which a writer journeys…worlds of mermaids, cowboys, and fay. They’ll never find that sexy pirate or discover why history forgot him. They’ll never know the joy in discovering why this ghost of history picked you to tell his story through, and as payment for this kind deed, reveals where his hidden treasure’s buried.
There is magic in wisdom….and wisdom in silence.
