My Soulitude

Silence & Words!


Somehow, words fail me (ahh, well mostly). I take cover under silence but that too doesn’t always work. In my confusion between the two, I choose what the situation demands. Words do well when I meet a stranger, a new neighbour or a colleague. Words bind relationships. So I take an effort to speak when with people, using words sparingly where I am uncomfortable, and liberally where I have the onus of keeping a conversation going.

Silence bodes well for prayer, communicating with nature, and when I am being misjudged for words (read quite often). My casual approach towards words make me a poor communicator.¬†With time, you learn to use the two successfully and find your balance. As you age, you start sorting more. You feel secured with your shortcomings. And that’s such a wonderful gift of adding years. Now, I choose silence over words and words over silence. The demarcation is fading.
