post-script

i do realize the intrinsic value of words. they can inspire. they CAN provoke change. i do not intend to stop writing.

but it’s easy to hide behind words. so, while continuing to write, i also intend to raise my hand a little more when vehicles pass me by. to smile, to look people in the eye, whenever possible.

because loving humanity is what life’s all about.

    I read this post first, and then your second, and I’m glad that you had a change of thought so quick =) Words can build and destroy, but they come from what is in our hearts too … which can be the most beautiful thing of all. I always see your reflection through what you write, so hope you are encouraged and strengthened … and may we ALL turn more of our words into action (so easier to speak than do sometimes!) have a wonderful trip!

    Your words change me.

    I think of you often in your speck of a village, changing the world.

    Keep pecking, Emily — it really matters.

    All’s grace,
    Ann
