Under most circumstances I would have to say that I am far better at writing than I have ever been at speaking. I tend to prefer to write what I need from others, rather than have to actually say it to them. I like being able to think it through slowly, edit myself, and make sure I say it just right.
That was until this week. More than a few times in the past week I have managed to cause serious confusion when the other party didn't understand what I was talking about. To make matters worse, they were all instances where I put a great deal of effort into wording things just right so as to ensure no mistakes.
On top of everything else I've come to realize just how much I hate and avoid confrontation. Oh and saying no. I really and truly suck at saying no.
Recently I've had to take some measures to eliminate a certain person from having too much access to me. This person's total lack of communication and writing skills has resulted in more than a few hurt feelings. But more than that, she is now avoided and ostracized by an otherwise open and loving group of friends.
So as I sit here wishing I was better at being more direct, I am doing my best to avoid speaking to the most direct person I know.
That all being said, it is time for a little self-promotion of my other writing gigs! (Where hopefully I expressed myself correctly!)

I found this at the Veterans Cemetery today. Someone has placed the same kind of rock, and a penny, along with a small ribbon and flag pin, on every headstone. Any ideas what that means? What does the rock and penny mean? I debated that maybe the rock is just anchor to hold the ribbon on each stone. But seems odd too just by the way it was placed. Any ideas? #WWI #veteransmemorial #cemeteryfinds
