Got Words

 

 

 

 

I just got all my words out and put them on the table. I am going to start using them now. I am going to write words I like along with some I love. I would be glad to lend you any that you think you can use. Some of the really big ones like “anaconda”, if not watched, will squeeze the life out of words like “puff.” Words, like “judgment”, will want to stand on top of words like “compassion” and “forgiveness.” Words like “hate” self justify and get along poorly with most other words. Some people will use the word “love” like soft butter and spread it on everything. It’s a slippery slope you may not want to go down. Words like “sex” undress the mind, while words like “arrest” scare people.
