Friday Musings: Finding Nuance

Friday Musings: Finding Nuance

There are certain words in the English language that fascinate me. Cadence is one of them. I wrote an entire blog post about the particular and pleasing rhythm that certain people have when they speak or write. I suggested that I thought it was also possible for there to be cadence in life. I love the word somnambulism too, otherwise known as sleepwalking, and one of the words most likely to cause someone to lose in a spelling bee. I did not write a blog post about

Friday Musings: Lost and Found

There are certain losses in life that remain incomprehensible no matter how much we may try to assign meaning to them. Some come too early, some don’t follow the natural order we expect, and others should never occur at all.

Friday Musings: What Love Reveals

Friday Musings: What Love Reveals

So let me begin this Friday Musings post with a confession. What you are reading is not what I had originally written for today. Not so scandalous, I know, but it’s important in a way. I began this week with a poem by Sylvia Plath that was about the reflection of ourselves that we see in a mirror, and continued that line of thought on Wednesday with a song from Counting Crows that was about a truer version of ourselves being pulled out from deep inside.
