This past week I've been sick and just when I thought I was at the tail-end of it, slowly making my way back to health I lose my voice. It's been an interesting past couple of days- not being able to talk much. It's hard to sustain a conversation for any length so all I can manage is a few sentences here and there or tiny whispers in Ebert's ear. But what I've really noticed during this silence period is that I've been listening more and choosing my words more carefully. It's made me ask myself this question- "What do I really want to say?".
