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.)
