    Simply put, we arrange the letters of our alphabets into various configurations.
    With that assemblage, we have the power to evoke in our fellow human beings any number of the following:

    tears..laughter...comfort...hope...unease...fear...knowledge...
    empathy...anger...insight...contentment...gratitude...restlessness...anxiety...
    understanding...communion...paranoia...enchantment...affection...love...
    ...and this is a woefully incomplete list, given the stunning range of human comprehension and emotion.

    Consider for a moment how astonishing our ability to assemble letters
    into words and words into communication, whether written or verbal.
    Is this not the most incredible gift?

    Your words are your emissaries.
    Ask yourself what you wish to bring to this world.
    Your answer is your life's offering.
    It is sacred work, this.


    The universe, no doubt, is taking note.
