The Voice of Silence
a vignette by Alice B. Clagett, 7 October 2018

When I was in college, I took a Biology class. The class sounded interesting but, as luck would have it, our instructor was a dour person with very definite opinions of a sort I had never before encountered.

I recall one such: He told us that babies in the womb were parasites upon their mothers. His manner of speaking made it clear there would be no room for argument on this point.

All these many years later, I have him to thank for this discovery: The most useless thing I know how to do is to hear a preposterous assertion and then fail to give voice to my thoughts on the truth of the matter.

It is these, our unspoken truths, that follow us all our lives long, pleading to be spoken. Whether to a group of friends, or to the warm cheer of a morning cup of coffee, or to the fire of the evening sky, these words long to be spoken.

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
