Softly into Wordlessness

As a very late adopter of Google Reader (the one that lets you have your favorite blogs stream), I’m continually stunned into silence by the beauty of the things I read. As my list of must-reads grows each week, the problem is compounded now.

I become at these moments, a dedicated word worshipper but also oddly wordless… my fingers frozen over the keyboard pausing to absorb what I’ve read, stories I want to share…

About loneliness

About teaching children to fly

About longing to hear good news about raising kids

About heartbreak

And I simply cannot write anything better. So I sit and read instead. And wait for my own words to come again…

    I do find wonderful words written by another to be incredibly intimidating at times.

    i find beautiful words AND the size of my google reader to both be equally intimidating at times.

    Beautiful words are so inspiring to me. Then I get sad that I can’t seem to cnojure them as much as I would like.

    Why wait for one’s own words to come again when one can reach down one’s own throat and yank phlegm. Or is that just Bossy’s method?
