I hear people bandy about terms that were once understood as definite descriptions as if those meanings no longer apply. It seems to happen more often and to ever more beautiful words.
Politicalizing or degrading language is an offense, but it is also a part of the adaptation of words to current times. It behooves us to cast back on some of the original purposes set out in our lexicon.
As children, many of us wondered at the beauty of the falling snow, and scores of us have yet to lose the fascination. The idea that each snowflake is an imprinted original with a unique design unlike any other ever released from heaven is fantastic, as is the fact that each human being is an even grander a miracle.
Today, I encourage you to celebrate who you are and what you create. Contribute something refreshingly inventive to our world. Give others an opportunity to experience creation through your perspective. You can only impact society if you take action.
We may grow older,
But if we nurture our passions
Keep farseeing eyes
An open, compassionate
Heart, be a blessing.
In all that you undertake;
It makes trouble quake.
As a prompt: Take a word whose reputation has been sullied by offensive misuse and harken back to its origins. Create something, letting the original meaning shine. Do this in any medium that appeals to you.
I am grateful:
- I have to chance to express myself creatively.
- I am able to write.
- Reading is a fundamental skill I exercise regularly.
- My son inspired me by calling.
- The well we plumb to manifest art and literature in our existence never runs dry.
