The brook’s never dumb
Yet it’s voice is often drowned
By our babbling

Perhaps staying dumb isn’t being dumb after all. 🙂
No it’s not. During my real introverted days when I just smiled, people always thought I wasn’t that bright. But I heard everything.
We rarely learn that much while our lips are moving and we aren’t even listening.
I know. I talk too much these days. More out of stress and nervous energy.
Once again mindfulness is the answer. 🙂
