Mar. 29 – Note to Self

Does the sound of someone’s voice have the power to silence you?

Such a generalized question, but I would bet you thought of somebody and perhaps thought of their voice.
I did.

Did you speak on it?
It is alright.
I did not, either.

I also never mentioned their tone, intent or context.
I would bet you thought of all three in the time it took you to think of that somebody, without even thinking about doing it.
I also thought of all three.

Imagine millions, even billions, of other people around the world thinking this at the same time you are thinking this. Millions and billions of alternative stories, characters, circumstances, situations and outcomes to yours.
There are so many possibilities in the world, so many ways to live and so many lives to be lived by you.

This moment is not defining.
