Well, it was actually Thursday last week and I was at a wedding reception and I didn't really know anyone or have anyone to talk to. So I found someone who was about my age and introduced myself and all of that. I told her my interests and hers turned out to be almost the same. From there we couldn't stop talking. Suddenly we had a million things to talk about just from that one common ground we found between us. Which is why fellow readers I have the urge to talk about how humans connect.
I mean, it is incredible in the first place that we have a way to communicate where (at least in the same country) everyone can understand each other. If you really think about it, the fact that we were able to come up with language to express ourselves and try to get other people to understand us is incredible. That and the other fact that we have millions of different words to use to express ourselves with. Words are a form of expression that have the same potential to be just as beautiful as a dance or a song or a painting or any other fine art. All we have to know is how to put them together. And once we find out how we want to use our words we have so many possible ways to go to inspire the people around us.
I think that with all of the millions of words that we have it is a shame that we use so few. We use the same words everyday to create bland tasteless sentences that express nothing but our aversion to making something so common and everyday beautiful.
So back to connecting with people, it is just astounding that we have such a beautiful and very adverse way to express ourselves and have people understand. Even though some people say that there are some things that can't be described with words, I say that there are a whole bunch more things that can't be described without words. I personally would rather be stuck with only words than without any words.
So, I would like to challenge all of you people out there to make an effort to use more words, try experimenting with your style of speech and find a way to string words together to make them a more beautiful form of expression. Because words just like a dance or a song take practice to get them just right. Use your words to connect yourself with other people around you and find out what you have in common. Don't leave things unsaid. As one of my favorite Elvis songs says "It's now or never" so say what you have to say now. Don't wait or assume. Express yourselves with the most influential form of expression...WORDS.
