We all have, I think, an instinct-list in our brains, who knows the bad signs and the good signs.
Sign of good sign, for me :
When someone talks alone when she bakes
…or when he/she “makes” something.
I don’t know why I consider why it’s a good sign. Let’s think about it. What does that mean? Maybe it’s a way :
- to slow down the never ending fast thinking process we all have in mind?
- to evacuate a part of stress?
- to offset the absence of a conversationing spouse?
- to focus – with words?
- to “check” things (for instance what’s written in the cook book)?
- to organize blossoming ideas who come in bursts inside our head?
- to put tasks in a row (because words come in line and are not polyphonic) instead of all-at-the-same-time?
Well, I’m like that. I have colleagues like that.
When I organize pile of books, deciding where I will place them where I think they belong, from crates on shelves or on tables or on lecterns – I talk to myself about what I do.
It can happen that someone comes to me smiling and say “You talk alone, mister, and I do the same”.
Winking eye. We’re from the same faction…
Have a nice day!
