Words have a special place in my heart. Perhaps because I am a linguist, I particularly enjoy savouring and analyzing words used by people in writing or in speech. They are a means of expression, and can be used creatively to convey a myriad of emotions, to illustrate a world beyond the one here, and to empower (if used well and responsibly). Words are not enough to fully encapsulate the complexity of human beings and this world, but within the limitations of each language, there is freedom for creativity, and we can try, to the best of our abilities, to communicate what's in our hearts and minds. I am, by no means, a good writer, but there are times I feel compelled to share certain things in the form of writing. So pop by once in awhile, and perhaps you may find that I have written something that was on my heart.
