...of Miscommunication of Translation Part I

Silence isn’t silent.
Silence speaks; ignorantly to some, intelligently to others.

I’ve been thinking that you regard my silence as me being stupid, passive, slow, weak, and lacking self-confidence.

I’ll make a deal with you:
If I speak,
You listen.

When I speak,
You hear me…
…without calling me a bitch, nag, or whiner, and then saying that I’m not listening to or understanding you.

Playa’, I am listening to you; your words are audible.
They’re also cunning, beguiling, vexing, ridiculing, and reeking of undue preeminence.



  1. Good morning, Larie! I hear you in your silence, and in your words. Lovely! Thank you for sharing.
