My voice left me this morning. I came in to work and did my usual writing, but once that was done, I had little else to do. I couldn't leave, although my coworkers kept asking why I was there (that always makes you feel important). I had to stick around the office for an interview I had prearranged. Time passed s l o w l y.

It did give me time to reflect. The things I take for granted are often the most important things in my life. Being able to talk...that's a biggie. Especially in radio.

My voice is returning this afternoon. I'll be back in the usual routine tomorrow. Hopefully I'll be a little wiser, and maybe I'll remember that I can often learn a lot if I just keep my mouth shut.
