Speak no, see no, hear no??


Often times, especially recently I realize I do not contribute to a lot of the political conversations, debates, arguments, rapport...that seems to surround me. For the longest time I feel like I a little bit like the the picture I posted... and feel guilty...like if I don't even "hear" or "see" or "speak" what is going on around me (politically-economically) then I will not feel it.
I tend to fly under the radar when it comes to debating most topics, often times, I feel like if I am not 100% educated on the topic I am debating that it seems crazy to approach it, I will be in the center of a debate, and hear something I disagree with, yet I keep silent, because I am thinking... "if you can't really back this up, don't even jump in to this conversation, girl!"
So I guess just for the record, I do have an opinion, but I choose, and have the right not to publicly share it, if your are really interested, invite me for coffee, I will share whatever is in my head, as non-linked to the news media I have tried to stay lately.

In spite of getting lost and talking the whole night to Pitts-to-the-Burghey and back, somehow we missed politics!!! Alright, let's do coffee or a LOST night - I'm VERY interested in what's inside your head!!! Love you!
