A new sentence in my life.

I read a few simple words tonight that someone wrote about me.

She wrote, ‘you inspire me……thank you’.

I do not know how to respond.

    silence is a response too

    • Paul Nichol says:

      I know silence, I enjoy silence, and silence is my natural environment.
      My question to myself is, should I and can I, respond differently and if not why.
      I have been considering these thoughts today, in silence.
      Thank you for the comment.

  2. Sweet and simple. Maybe not responding means there’s nothing more to do than accept it as truth?

    • Paul Nichol says:

      It is the act of accepting that I find difficult, I always have. I was surprised, that my defensive reaction to this lovely message was as strong as it was.
      I now understand that blogging is about relationships, and that these relationships are important and that in some aspects they can be more intimate than some friendships in the real world. We reveal so much about ourselves here. Is that not the truth about writing for ourselve or for a blog?
      Thank you for all the likes you have place here on my blog, and I do enjoy reading your posts. They are very clever and original.
