The winds of change have swept through this blog. When I started this about two years ago, I was content in naming it Embracing Dawn, hoping to showcase my poetry which was mostly (at that time) about living, dreaming and believing (the tag line. :p) In the process though I discovered the true power of words. The right words can bring comfort to the broken, faith to the lost and hope to the hopeless. An inspiring quote can rejuvenate the soul. A silly joke can bring out that trill of the laughter long suppressed. A true story might awaken you. A poem may turn into a parable of life.
On the other hand, an off hand comment could be a debilitating poison. A snide remark can rip the heart to shreds. A callous statement can wreak havoc.
Words are like that. And with all the 'warning' and 'fragile' stickers that we use these days its strange that the one thing that can really cause 'damage' or may be 'fatal' (figuratively) is without one. So I'll put that label on today.
Words are fragile. Handle with care.
