The Spoken Word

The Spoken Word

“Thump” it went, then again….. a thought bouncing around inside my cranial shell; wondering if it should take flight and become something spoken, something important or simply remain unheard– confined to the self imposed restrictions of my silent awareness.  Not yet to be shared in the spoken universe, lacking a basic confidence and a fear of acceptance,  I find solace that someday soon it will gravitate to the stage of being heard, becoming part of the world, of others’ processes of thinking, knowing and doing.

Find the geometrical plane in which to think and explore……..as though I am, as though you are, as though we are, so that speaking what is on our minds becomes easy, then easier, then plentiful, and acceptable. “Blow their socks off” someone cheers from the rear, jealously longing to become a member of the group known as  the spoken word.

Its power is profound; the magnitude of its lasting effect is startling.

Try it, you’ll see………………………welcome to the club.
