01/15/2006: "Self Expression"

I'm not nearly as skilled as the writer Wait Wait--Don't Tell Me! who creates for the weekly listener limerick challenges. Writing current event limericks takes talent =)

On the subject of identity:

It seems easy to pigeonhole me
simply by what you may see
Somedays I'm loquacious
(some call me pugnacious)
but no label will fit to a T


I enjoy writing. I make lists on all sorts of papers, I record thoughts here on the 'blog and in my others journals, I make occasional comments on other blogs/forums. I try to be deliberate with my word choice because the subtleties of connotation might (however unintentionally) convey a different message. I'm well aware of the power of words to enlighten or malign (or bore, even, yes, I see you yawning *yawn* stop that!)

I like to write and I like to read. I think that they go hand in glove together. Writing remains one of those passions I deeply desire to improve upon. Other modes of expression seem more likely to remain simple hobbies with no hidden gushers of talent waiting to spring forth.

Not that I have any delusions about the quality of my writings, fear not dear reader. I know I'm not going to earn a living by the pen (or wordprocessor) but as long as my aphasia remains at bay, I will delight in the writings I can produce.

THIS IS SO ME, TOO! Woops darn capslock.

Especially on trying to use the right words, trying to convey the right nuance and connotation.

I think that sometimes in our intensity capslock works out GREAT!

(it's embarassing when I think I've hit the A key and all of a sudden I have capitalized words that are one letter off)

Ok, so Saturday you feel like you are in a dazey fog...then Sunday you write a limerick!? So funny! Let's see, if you still feel like you are in a fog with your side effects AND you wrote this blog on Sunday....well I am in BIG trouble!!!! For Autumn to write a limerick that even looked like a limerick I would probably have to be another woman...someone like...Tea'! You have a talent that is beyond anything I could imagine myself accomplishing. :) Love, Autumn
