What a terrible word. Have tapered my frequency of use but I should stop entirely, or “strip it off my flesh.”

I like etymology because it reveals the true meaning of the word as it was formed and evolved. I find often that current usage of a word is a faded version of the original intent.


Silence is more comforting than words.

A touch more healing than a word.

A smile speaks louder.

But the Word Is that Which comforts

And Lasts

For Eternity
