Just some thoughts...

Every day, as I write Poetiquejustis, I pray it will be a blessing to someone.
Today, I hope it is you.

He had the gift of quiet
John LeCarre

There are some people
who would turn down tickets to the symphony

to listen to the sound of their own voice
(and yet rarely return a call)
Do you know anyone like that?

me too

They do not speak as much as they


Met anyone like that?

Me too

Around them there is always an air

of disquiet

(Warning: here is where I get snarky because these people make me nuts)

they get most of their exercise from dropping names

and dragging around their

For aerobics, they chase the spotlight around the room

Sound like someone you want to know?
Me either

but you....you have
the gift of quiet
and that's everything
and that's poetiquejustis

Better is a handful of quietness than two hands full
of toiling and striving after the wind
Ecclesiastes 4:6
