Stream of Consciousness Saturday

This post is part of SoCS (

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “silent/silence.” Use one or both in your post. Have fun!

I, like others answering this prompt, was thinking of the question – if a tree falls in a forest when no one is around, does it make a sound?

This then reminded me that, at work this week, while we were all waiting desperately for the day to be over (I don’t remember which day – probably all of them), someone was wondering – if a workplace is empty, does the work still exist?  Well, it was something like that….

These are the kinds of thoughts that reign freely at work at this time of year (well, not just at this time of year, but it does seem to be more frequently expressed now), when the sun is shining, there are gardens to be gardened, and much wine to be drunk on decks and patios.

  1. LOL. I laughed at your contemplation about the empty workplace.

  2. hmmm interesting questions. I think the work is still there, just waiting for someone to deal with it the next day. 🙂

  3. I’m reminded of a Far Side cartoon: If a tree falls in the forest and hits a mime, does anyone care?

  4. I lean more toward “if the wine gets drunk before anyone else gets home, was it really ever there in the first place?” 😆😆😆
