Beyond Words

Life has moments of joyful happiness, overwhelming sadness, breathtaking awe, and quiet gratitude. Also moments – a select few – where these emotions come together as a powerful force of transcendence. This was a week with one of those moments. As I reflect (and a gaze at the Pacific Ocean is the perfect way to do so), I realize the moment deserves my undivided attention. My complete focus. So I pause, lift my hands from the keyboard, and simply say…….. we’ll chat again next week.

Three hundred posts would suggest I have something to say… This blog was born from a desire to elevate the English language, highlighting eloquent words from days gone by. The stories I share are snippets of life itself, and each comes with a bonus: a dusted-off word I hope you’ll go on to use more often. Read “Deutschland-ish Improvements” to learn about my backyard European wish list. Try “Slush Fun” for the throwback years of the 7-Eleven convenience store. Or drink in "Iced Coffee" to discover the plight of the rural French cafe. On the lighter side, read "Late Night Racquet Sports" for my adventures with our latest moth invasion. As Walt Whitman said, “That the powerful play goes on, and you may contribute a verse.” Here then, my verse. Welcome to Life In A Word.
