This week, Eden is putting out the word - literally.
Um, I'm afraid the truth is if there were an open mic, I'd avoid it.
Like the plague.
The red faced, splotchy skin, quivery voice, shaky hand plague.
Therefore, this post kinda looks like this...
However, I absolutely love words.
Words spoken in jest with friends.
Words that express, reassure, comfort, explain or entertain.
Like most bloggy blog bloggers I love wrangling words,
constructing sentences and playing with this here language.
I love nerdy word puzzles, word play, dorky play-on-word jokes.
I love sayings, quotes, idioms, similes, metaphors - the whole lot.
I'm stupidly interested in language conventions and critical literacy.
When I think of 'words to live by' I can come up with masses of them.
I just can't choose any one string of them to commit to!
This week though, with some heavy goings-on around me
and even heavier feelings in my heart -
some words from my childhood keep coming back to me on repeat mode.
Trust a few.
But always paddle your own canoe.
Not exactly sophisticated or poetic - hardly party fare - but my words for this week.
In fact, probably my words for my life.
