* Beginnings are often disguised as painful endings.
* Change your life by trusting your ability to respond naturally to the circumstances of your life.

Words. . written, spoken, have power! The ability to use words is - - 'Who said " The pen is mightier than the sword?" We've all been touched by words.
Some very blessed people have the unique ability to always say the right thing. My friends
Mr. (WH) Blenko, and Eon analytical by training are eloquent and stimulating conversationalist on most all subjects. My blogger friend Chris http://not-my.blogspot.com/
a lawyer by training is an excellent listener and professional writer. I am admire these men and their ability to use words.

While I never met T.S. Eliot+ or DH Lawrence ++ their words
+ " What I love determines how I love ..." TS Eliot
++ " Are you willing to be singled out,
erased, cancelled,
made nothing?
Are you willing to be made nothing?
dipped into oblivion?
If not, you will never really change? " DH Lawrence
remained embedded in my thoughts since my initial reading (1998). Words that can encourage, inspire, hurt, defeat, to be used as verbal weapons or loving arms . . the power of word seems almost mystical.
After being introduced in Ms. Blau's honors English Class I learn to find hope and courage and answers in the words of Kahill Gibran and Lao-tzu.
This week . . . take some time to think about words . . . before you speak...
-Blunt your sharpness
-Untie your knots.
-Soften your glare.
-Settle your dust. . . and remember ' Those who care least about approval seem to
receive the most!'.
- Live calmly.

touched by words....this is what my math professor said to one of the students in the class..."It's EASY to explain to a person who does not understand, But, Impossible to the one who REFUSES to understand"

Thank you for commenting. . .I always felt MATH was its own language - a language like music
that is universal.
