A few days ago, someone on the Book of Face linked to this poem by Dorianne Laux, of whom I’d never heard. But I’m going to have to check into her work at the next disposition of disposable income (so to speak), because this…it speaks to me. Which strikes me as odd, since it’s about silence.

Again, my plan on the way home was to start this much earlier in the evening so I could maybe catch up another day — and again, I spent rather a lot of time pottering around on the Intertubes instead of writing. Points for me, though, in that some of it was watching, a couple more times, the TEDxUNR video for the Day 81 alias 2/15/16 post. Partly to be sure it did in fact hit the points I thought it hit (it did), and partly because it was a damned good presentation all on its own.
I therefore present to you, in all its glory, the last of the Three Relevant Things: the Thought-Provoking Video!
Before I write up what should have been Day 80, a.k.a. 2/14/16, a health update:
FEELING BETTER!! The glue-in-the-sinuses feeling? Almost gone. Coughing-until-breathless? Nope. Still a bit of a cough, but even less annoying than yesterday.
I like this part. Now to figure out how to get my I-don’t-get-sick superpower back… 😉
Anyway, I intended to write this earlier in the evening in the hope of also cranking through Day 81 (that is, yesterday). And instead I’ve been scrolling around on the Book of Face, reading linked articles, writing the occasional phrase mentally but not on the blog. This sort of self-delaying tactic usually pops up for me for one of two reasons: I’m more bored with the topic than I thought I’d be, or it’s hitting closer to home than I like.
Despite the fact I planned to write the post expressly because A Thing on the Internet hit home.
Brains. Funny old things, aren’t they? It shall not, however, defeat me; Day 79 was the Meaningful Cartoon, and so today I share with you The Resonant Blog Post!
