Words are powerful things aren't they.
Make you laugh, make you cry, scare you, arouse you, sicken you, hurt you, soothe you, uplift you, delight you or plunge you into despair
They can turn around and bite you.
They can be twisted, hurled, shared, bad, good, murmured, shouted, whispered, spat, held back, spun into yarns, used to draw attention to you, and away from you, they can be heated or cool, firey or icy, soft or hard, damning or exalting.
You can chose them carefully, or like an avalanche watch them spill from you without thought of harm to others or yourself.
You can use them as a weapon, or as a first aid kit, harm or heal, to build friendships or to tear them down.
Too many words can destroy something forever, too few can have the same effect.
Words have started wars, and ended them.
They can have more than one meaning, the same word can be insulting or exciting, depending on the way its said.
They can tell you more about the person saying them, than the person they are meant to be about.
The old saying "better to be silent and thought a fool, than to open your mouth and prove it" might be corny.. but corny is just another word for "well used truth"
I love words, they can also transport you into other worlds, other times and places, they can be springboards for your imagination to take flight.
However they can also be used to write lists, which are really the product of the devil. A list of things to do invites failure. A list of wants invites greed. Horrible things lists!

- Your eyesight starts to fade so that you can't see your looks going,
- Your hearing starts to go so that you can't hear people saying your looks are going,
- Your taste buds start to go so that makers of extremely strong cheese have people to buy their product,
- Your sense of smell goes, of course, so that as you fall into increasing decrepitude, you don't notice that faint aroma-de-wee that seems to come to us all.
