To speak or not to speak? How to frame what to say? Is it good to speak anyway. Is now a good time? That’s a really important question. It necessarily builds in a life saving pause between thought/feeling and action. A cooling moment when the heat is rising and the compulsion to speak, or write, is almost overwhelming. Thankfully there isn’t anything really important or pressing I need to communicate right at this moment.
While going through my bookmarked pages, something I do when looking for blogging inspiration, I came across Marshall Rosenberg talking about the basics of Non Violent Communication. I’ve not always connected so well with NVC as it is commonly passed along. This site makes the whole thing more easily understandable and less, how do we say, verbally stultifying. I’ll return and take a longer look.
In the mean time there is nothing that can replace the simple act of sitting still. A moment to cool, whatever the weather!
