I’ve spent a lot of words today.
Most of them have been on friends, and in private places, intimate, caring, cautious. Some have been interrupted, some have been lost. A lot of the words I’ve used have been the unsaid ones, that sit in the back of my throat while I wait for my friend to finish what they have to say.
I say nothing.
Listening is a skill I don’t have mastered yet.
But goodness me I’m glad I’m learning.
