Small Stone

I try to deflect spoken words in the morning. I prefer the sound of nothing while my brain awkwardly clicks up to speed. TV and husband energetically chatter as I will my ears to close. But now a stranger’s voice breaks through. ” Inspiration is for amateurs. The rest of us just show up and get to work”. I have no idea who is talking, but I am thankful that the pitch of his voice can pierce my irritation.

  1. i prefer silence in the morning until I am fully awake

  2. Good quote, but i have to say i am just like you in the sense i do not want to hear cupboards slamming, kids yelling, where’s the keys, did you pay the bill, or any other noise in the morning. I just want to wake up in silence my own way.

  3. Thanks for the kind words, you guys. I don’t feel like such a total grinch knowing that others are like me in the morning. I swear, I’m basically a very happy person once I wake up, but it’s a slow process!
