Yelling - It's Not What It's Cracked Up To Be

Yelling is for the uninformed young – who don’t know any better. You usually hear it when people are frustrated and at a loss for words. It wears you out, shakes you up and ruins the atmosphere for days. Communication zooms right out the window.
As a high school teacher, I never yelled. I wanted to, but knew that quiet, solid, composure would work better.
At this age, I need to save my energy for smiling.

Little Old Lady

“Well, I feel I’ve become a little old lady in some respects. In public, I’ll be going about and doing things and I look up to see older people looking and smiling…kindly. What the hell is that about?”
