The Wonder of Words

Aren't words wonderful?

Something about putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboard) opens something up in me. I still don't have the time and mental energy lately to fully develop those thoughts, but I'm working on it.

I've been reading a lot lately, and reading beautiful words opens up those same feelings for me.

I just visited a blog that prompted me to leave this comment:

I'm not sure what to make of this post--I think it's quintessentially Beck--that alluring combination of wistfully sad, brutally honest, and charmingly amusing.

Go read her posts Jiggity Jog (which sparked my comment) and Stillwater (about the role that books and a particular author played in her life).

Then you can click over to 5 Minutes for Mom and read my post about books as Comfort Food.

Thanks so much, Jennifer! Off to read your comfort food post!

Words really are wonderful. Shape, sound, meaning, rhythm, all strung like pearls. Makes me want to measure my words wisely, carefully, lovingly.
