Eavesdropping

Today, I want to hear from you.

“There’s nothing like eavesdropping to show you that the world outside your head is different from the world inside your head.” Thornton Wilder

“Any place is good for eavesdropping, if you know how to eavesdrop.” Tom Waits

We’ve all done it. What have you overheard? And where?

Write a note or poem about a time you eavesdropped on someone. Send it to me here (or if you’re a subscriber, simply hit reply to this email.) I will publish your writing in next week’s blog installment. (Please include your first name and location with your submission.)

*Names in this blog have been changed to protect my family, neighbors, and friends in the neighborhood, and in a nod of appreciation to the beloved Swedish author Maj Lindman, I’ve renamed my three blondies Flicka, Ricka, and Dicka.
