"You waste too much time on your words." You once told me.

"No," I replied "you don't waste enough time on words. Words are a tool to you, not a treat. A pragmatic means of communicating, bargaining, exchanging vital snippets of information. Calm down. Stop speaking so fast. We're not fighting a war (not us, not here). You don't prune and select your language. You've forgotten how to roll it around on your tongue, or try it on for size. Revel in rolling Rs, or the sweetness of a string of vowels and consonants, arranged in such a way to create more beauty than you ever thought possible.
Language can be a delicacy to contrast your paltry recital of data. You should try it."
Words are beautiful.

Seeing the title after reading the body was probably the best part.

Words written and read are tiny threads between minds. So it was cool reading words about words, then a title that at least to me, acknowledges that language is how we relate to people.
