Working on a document for work. Word keeps suggesting I use fewer words in my sentences, i.e. changing “similar to” to “like”. Bah – I didn’t develop a basic vocabulary simply to dumb it down to Twitter level communication. A sentence should be functional poetry; perfectly understandable yet roll off the tongue the way a good drink does- smooth, yet rich, hinting at possibilities if you take the time to savor it.

Modern communication is more like Miller Lite than Glenmorangie. 🙁

I chose the Shorter Whitman because of his work, "Song of Myself" and because of my self-deprecating sense of humor. I am under no illusion that I can write successful essays or poetry, but I have been known to write them anyway.
