Today I've been thinking about restraint, a concept I've been considering in meditation. When to speak out; when to hold my tongue. Nothing in my exterior life has brought this up more than the political situation here in the United States. I am often shocked both by vitriolic, unwise speech and by what is NOT being said.
But I can only control what I say or don't say, and that is why it is something I've been pondering in meditation.
I spotted an old Joey Challenge (#214, here) on the tangle "Spoken," and gave it a go last night just before bed.
When restraint and courtesy are added to strength, the latter becomes irresistible.

Love your spoken, M, and love the black accents, sometimes inside the lines and a few times out. Maybe they were meant to inside, but like this it gives it just that little extra that makes your tile special. (I spoke out! LOL)

Thanks. It was meant to be random. You have indeed "Spoken" !!! (hard to resist the punning)
