(from the blook) wondering out loud

when i was really young, i did most all of my wondering out loud, but something happened along the way, because it has become strictly an inside activity nowadays and frankly it's an indoor circus i've got goin' on in there.

personally, it’s just not the same.

I still wonder out loud. And still, no one really pays attention... Sister can't get any dialogue!

I try not to wonder anymore at all. It just makes me sad.

I like your blog!

miz uv, first thanks for dropping by and taking the time to comment (and when the comments are sad and nice, at the same time, i start to hop around in circles of joy ... well circles anyway).

as for the sad part, here's what i want you to try. wait till no one is around and then go in closet and wonder out loud. just use a low voice at first. don't do what i did, and start out with global warming or forest fires or nuclear stuff. that will make your head explode clear off your shoulders for sure.

start with something like a wind filled with butterflies, or what would a chair look like if our knees bent the other way.

in other words start slowly and build up.

go ahead and give it a try. report back in one week.


and don't be a stranger around here.

take care!

I wonder out loud all the time, always have. For the longest time Ive been trying to quiet it and thinking of stopping all together. When other people are around I always get thrown judgmental glances along with accusations of talking to myself. I never understood what was so wrong about it.

nothing's wrong with it. nothing, carisa.

thanks for stopping by and letting me know there are still out loud wonderers out there.

'wonder' by again!

It depends on the kind of out loud wondering one does. I used to wonder out loud. I got sent to my room...for days.
