“Is that similar to how this was constructed … just throw some cement dust and water at it?” — I could almost picture you in that meeting my feisty friend!
A great piece Melanie, with a few powerful takeaways I’ve saved:
- “Over the years as a freelancer writer, I had learned to never say anything even approximating “What’s wrong with it,” simply because that implies there IS something wrong.”
- “Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair.”
A few words that kinda sing for me: assemblage; conflate; ebullience; evanescent; lassitude; and mellifluous.
That last word is for you my good friend, MEL-lifluous … 🙏
