Shhhh...I'm trying here
I have found lately that I am much more comfortable in silence than I used to be. Maybe it's because I don't understand half of what people are saying, maybe it's because I have dated a couple of girls that just don't speak, maybe it's beacuse I have come to the realization that I have less to contribute than my ego had previously alotted, maybe it's because I really accomplished something that I set out to do when I left for this place.
It was am early Tuesday evening they day before I left and Mr. Oliver and I were sitting at the Cafe' Hun and I explained that what I wanted to do with my next year was to learn to be quiet and listen. Well I figure I got about 70% better in the quiet and 40% better in the listen. I still space out and come to the conversation with my own agenda, but after being away from people I love and conversing with the less than stylish lot of characters here, I have learned that the empty cart is the loudest. Therefore, I came to the conclusion that to be poignant instead of pushy and to be considerate instead of loud and to be open instead of darting can present you with great and wonderful things. (Any other cliche's I missed...just let me know)
Well Mr. Oliver also asked what I predicted of him and I said, "Get out of Baltimore." Good for Mike! Now if you would just fix your damn website all would be right with the world.
