Unrelated to anything, I was looking for the words for something and came across this statement that I thought you might appreciate:A word is not a crystal, transparent and unchanged; it is the skin of a living thought, and may vary greatly in color and content according to the circumstances and time in which it is used. --Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes
Cindy, how true! Thank you for sharing the quote. I love the thought of a word being the skin of a living thought and how that thought is what infuses life and colour into the word! Thank you again. :)
After your comments earlier this week about wondering if you really were a writer, the whole idea of words being living things is a fascinating concept and so true.
