"You are inclined to get muddled, if I may judge from last night. Let yourself go. Pull out from the depths those thoughts that you do not understand, and spread them out in the sunlight and know the meaning of them." ~ E. M. Forster
I've been slowly making my way through E.M. Forster's A Room With A View. I'm quite enjoying myself! :) Mr. Forster is an excellent writer. The quote above reminded me of some conversations I've had recently. (Looking at you, Ganise and Mary! ;) Conversations about how writing things out helps my thoughts to make more sense. "Our thoughts get untangled when they go through our fingers."
Sometimes just talking them out with someone else helps! I had the lovely experience of meeting an old friend for lunch yesterday and we talked about all kinds of things. We didn't solve any problems, we didn't tell each other exactly what to do, we didn't do anything amazing. Except we kind of did. We both shared what was on our hearts and the other offered the best thing of all--an attentive listening ear! (Because there's very little that's more frustrating than talking to someone who is paying no attention at all.)
Accordingly, if you have trouble getting your words out sometimes, rest assured you are far from alone! My thoughts definitely tend to get all muddled and tangled and writing them down or talking them out helps tremendously. So take heart! Untangling them can happen. Sometimes you just need a little sunshine and a listening ear. :)
