How do you conserve energy?
February 25, 2017
Once upon a time I read about a celebrity who took a break from talking once a week. Yeah. No talking. For twenty-four hours.
It sounds soothing.
It’s been soothing. I’ve been experimenting with talking much, much less ever since realizing -- after recording another couple of hours of the show -- how exhausting it is. I’m not much into small talk, and the alternative is taxing.
I mean, it’s great. But it’s taxing, too. Conversation is my canvas, and sometimes it’s nice to put the brushes down and give it a rest.
Funny thing about keeping your mouth shut. You can hear the sound of your own thoughts.
It’s been interesting!
