Perhaps because I am “a bear of little brain“ (Pooh Bear in AA Milne) I don’t retain great tracts of words.
I’d be hopeless as a Shakespearean actress.
But find a few well-chosen, beautifully crafted words…
…and they stick and feed me long after I’ve heard them uttered or read the page.
Hidden in the book of wisdom – Proverbs – is an exquisite phrase:
A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.Proverbs 25v11
That’s what I long for. And long to give.
What about you?
