V.J.’s Weekly Challenge #82: whisper

I’m right behind you! The voice is whisper-scratchy, low and menacing.

I can see you! I whisper back, giving my voice a threatening tone.

The teacher strikes continue here and I am filling in for working parents. Granddaughter #1 and I are playing a game in which we think of normal sentences that are scary when whispered.

The concept of a whisper takes me back to my days as a Therapeutic Touch practitioner. Our co-founder and teacher, Delores Krieger, would remind us that a whisper is always better than a shout – to make our presence and our offerings subtle.

I remember applying that principle as a teacher – when the class would become unruly, instead of yelling, I’d whisper.

Where else, in my life, might a whisper be appropriate, I wonder? I invite you to ponder this along with me this week.

I’ll be following you. (Read with a whisper, lol.)

Permission to write, paint, and imagine are the gifts I gave myself when chronic illness hit - a fair exchange: being for doing. Relevance is an attitude. Humour essential.
