So, let’s just note the elephant in the room – the coronavirus or COVID19. Wow, did you ever think this is how you would be spending your March? Unforeseen crisis situations happen all the time to people everywhere, but rarely at such a scale.
I confess when I selected the title for my blog, I honestly hoped my readers would burst into the Disney movie “Frozen” theme song, arms flung in the air, belting out the words at the top of their lungs. My granddaughters would do that. Oh good, you did! But I guess most of you did not.
Words are representations. We use them all the time. Sometimes words alone get results, but other times they fail. Words often require an action, a sincere feeling, or a real effort to have the desired impact. Sometimes they mean something different to different people, so clarification is needed.
I can’t for the life of me get used to seeing what appears to be people talking to themselves. They are actually on those little ear headphones. Sometimes the person is speaking so loudly.
