brevity

If I cannot get my thoughts down succinctly I feel I have failed. My blog posts are short specifically because I want to convey something with as little verbiage as possible. Language is so rich and powerful that it can transmit images with little effort. It is the way the words are combined that provides most of its power.

Explaining our feelings is best done in servings that can be processed by others in bite size morsels which tantalize and yet must necessarily remain sketchy in outline. Because, in the end, adding more language does not guarantee something as ethereal will be transmitted with any greater accuracy.
