The Twitter

20130614-105013.jpgYou all sit there. Quietly. Waiting. Behind a door that is just a tiny bit ajar.

I know you’re all talking. I am vaguely aware of a soft rumbling mumbling. Sometimes I peek in and hear you. Your words take shape and become more audible, more visible.

I don’t always say anything.

Sometimes I open the door and step in. I converse with you. I am one of you.

Sometimes I open the door and quietly say something and slip out again.

I know you’re there. Sometimes you know I am too.

Sometimes you call out my name and my ears prick up. I come running in to the room. There we are – together again.

I’m never very far away. You’re always there. Even in the middle of the night. Even in the middle of the day. Even now.

It’s a big world out there and you remind me that I’m a part of it.

Thank you.


Musical Challenge!!!!!

There are a few songs to clear up, so why not go back and have a look and try your luck!

Continuing the theme of the past couple of days…

Song 38:

When the work’s all done and the sun’s settin’ low
I pull out my fiddle and I rosin’ up the bow

Song 39:

I’ve been walkin’ these streets so long
Singin’ the same old song

    I’m no good on the musical challenge, but love your description of Twitter – that really is just what it is like! Great blog post 🙂

      Thanks! I was beginning to think that my posts were going unread and that my blog followers were jumping straight to the musical challenge!

      I’m glad you liked it. 🙂

        You could ration the musical challenges – then people would have to keep reading just to see when one will pop up 😉

        I’m surprised at how popular it is! I read out some of last year’s songs at dinner with friends last Saturday. It made for a wonderful after-dinner game.

    Great post Fiona!This was one of these I flagged to come back to and comment for #CommentJuly as I LOVE your description of Twitter. I love how it connects us with a community of like-minded people and how we can come and go freely – just dipping our toes sometimes and other times we can dive right into a conversation. I also really like your musical challenge – but the only one I knew was your very first one this year (Memory from Cats and the Lovecats by the Cure) and someone bet me to it! Maybe next year… Keep on being awesome 🙂
