I have always been fascinated with words: reading them to process and understand and enjoy, writing them down to commemorate or punctuate or simply to create. Perhaps I spend too much time focusing on getting it “right.” But words matter. They aren’t simply unnecessary things we throw at each other, or haphazardly toss around to sound “good,” but rather the words we use shape our days, our lives, our relationships, our viewpoints, our opinions, and other’s opinions, too. I don’t always get it “right.” But this blog will be an effort to “put pen to paper” and explore. I hope you’ll enjoy the journey, and even voice your own opinions, so that we can venture together.
