This is a post about nothing.
Yes, you read that right.
It’s almost pointless really, and I dare say I wouldn’t even be writing it, unless I didn’t have to write something, but it’s Tuesday and I do.
So instead, I’ll write a post about nothing.
Nothing, because everything I want to say, I can’t. Because all the words that are swirling around my head can not be shared here. Can not be put down on this place, at this time, for this audience. It wouldn’t be right.
It wouldn’t be wise.
And wisdom, well that is something I’m big on.
It’s not a common word (unless you’re talking about teeth), and it’s probably not a common practice. Wisdom goes beyond knowledge and intellect. It’s not just knowing what to do. It’s knowing when to do it, how to do it and why to do it. Or not to, depending on the situation.
Such a big word.
I’m on a search for wisdom. I don’t want the words that I type here, or the words I speak in conversation, to be pointless, fruitless words.
There is a time for fluff yes. There is a time to laugh and to giggle and to write something that lifts the spirits and rejuvenates the soul.
Just as there’s a time for deep and meaningful. For inspirational posts that make me want to be better.
There’s a time to speak out; against injustice and wrong doing.
A time to declare morals and absolutes and beliefs held firmly.
A time to make movies about Doctors at the ED, because what would life be (alright what would my blog be) without it.
And there’s a time to say nothing.
To keep quiet.
To refrain from using the words that you want; from screaming the truth because let’s face it, sometimes people don’t want the truth.
And it is the Truth that I so desperately want to write about, and yet I can’t.
So instead, you get a post about nothing.
Or maybe about searching for wisdom, and generally trying to be a better person.
But mainly about nothing.
And sometimes, nothing is the best thing you can say.
