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.
