i heard some not so commonly used words in movie dialogue tonight:
i found that exciting because
i love words, vocabulary
love the sound of them
love using them
love reading them
but i do love words for more than function
i'm fascinated by the power they contain
and yet terrified. .
i don't think we understand words in this context. . .
sometimes i think we humans talk too much
sometimes i think we don't talk enough
fail to communciate
the weight of words, their power
their link to action
what we say has a direct effect on what happens
speak too soon and it can be diastrous
speak too late and its the same thing
speak too much and the overflow of words spills away like run off
speak too little and the words dry up along with your ability to have a say
speak without action. . .
blah, blah, blah
act first, speak after = regrets, damage
speak lies = destruction
speak love = restoration
does that happen often?
i think too little
and what can stop words?
awe -- is that something humanity is still capable of feeling? dropped jaw, dumbfounded
disaster -- often snatches the words from our mouths
sorrow -- smothers words, makes us put our hands over our mouths, physically showing that we have none
realization -- running smack into the brick wall of undisputed truth -- open mouthed, no sound
i think the trick is balance and wisdom
knowing when to speak and what to say
controlling the flow of words so there's no waste
but making sure to speak when its called for
understanding how your words affect others
knowing that from the overflow of your heart, your mouth speaks
what's in the heart?
whatever comes out of our mouth.
f bombs and talk of excrement
