It has been about a month and a half since I took my Vow of Silence.
No great difficulties encountered so far, just some minor inconveniences… and wondering about those phone calls that had to remain unanswered.
I still whisper to the cats. Very soft chanting/singing is also allowed. Laughter too, is exempted from my vow of silence… and I will not hesitate to break the vow in case of emergency! Such as needing to shout to alert someone to danger…etc.
Otherwise I am happy to remain silent.
