My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

"A single kind word will keep one warm for years."

Can a word really have that much power?  Can it really stay with you, always there to bring to the forefront when needed?  I'd have to say yes.  I have always believed in the power of a word.  Two words in particular I have found misused and abused.  Love.  Hate.  They are very powerful words, though often not given the due they deserve.  But all of that is besides the point.

While a single word can hold immense power, a single kind word will not warm me.  In fact, it tends to do the exact opposite.  I'm not sure how it works, but I have an amazing knack for allowing something to fester, allowing it to play over and over until I twist it into something it is not.  I suppose one might say it is a real talent.  For me a single word will plague me for years, caging my heart instead of releasing it.
