Back and forth

A long time away, and the fire for this returns. I intend to call it "One Hundred Word Wanderings," and, like the name describes, it will encompass my thoughts in 100-word entries. I will probably close this blog after I begin the new one; meanwhile, stay tuned.

Life is short

Lately, my thoughts have been bursts, Twitter fodder, two sentences or less that have little place here. There's an app for that. Always, nowadays.

Lightning, active skies.

Sometimes, an instant is lasting.

Word of mouth

Those who yell are generally seen. That's what they want. They drown out those who speak calmly, more slowly. Perhaps more thoughtfully. Yelling will grab attention, no doubt. But it's never pleasant. It's really off-putting, actually; opposite, then, of its intent.

Yelling requires more energy than calm speech.

Therefore, those who yell will only tire of exhaustion, while the calm voice remains.

And will always be heard.
