    Silence does not heal. Silence conceals. Silence covers over. Silence slowly festers….

    Every once in a while, Ms. Dowlatshahi and Frog Applause makes me just stop cold and think long and hard. This is one of those times.

    if you were silent in the first place. Better to say nothing than nothing at all, or is it if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything? I think both apply. Very good T. Dowlatshahi

    Words have power, choose them with care. Silence too has power, use it wisely.

    I want to make a comment on something 3hourtour said yesterday. He was wondering how much of Teresa’s comic depended upon our comments and how much our comments added to the impact of the comic itself.

    I think todays comic proves the answer in both cases to be, none. It is so powerful, so poignent that it can stand alone. I could have easily read todays comic and felt it’s full impact without ever having read your comments.

    I do want to add why I think the comments section is important. While I can enjoy, appreciate and understand the comic on it’s own my experiance is improved by being able to share it with you all. Rarely do we see something as thought provoking as todays comic. Without the comments I would be enjoying it in solitude. It is nice to have someone to share it with, thank you.

    And thank you Teresa. When I read todays comic it made me think of my wife. A woman long ago damaged by words that I struggle every day to help heal.

    And I’ve used too many words today. Hope you all enjoy your weekend.

    I hope your wife is better for your efforts Dypak. Though I mostly hang out at Pibgorn; because of the enormity of comments which cuts my time other places, I still read and lurk here. I agree with you that sharing the experience is different than reading in solitude. Sometimes someone’s input makes me able to get the point that I would have missed.

    I’m sure The Old Wolf’s comment was beefy in its intent….if I could only read it.

    words are so powerful, but so is the tone and body language that carry them… a word itself can be innocuous, but the way it is said can do all of the damage. unfortunately that seems to be a lesson lost on a lot of people.. thanks Theresa for a wake up call
