so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them.”

– Nathaniel Hawthorne

Words have power.  By naming something, we give it even more power.  We add it to our world view. At the present, I am just beginning this phenomenal journey of the mind, but as time passes, I will learn.  I will name.  I will empower.  As we go along this path together, we shall build a shared consciousness of words and meanings and thoughts and power… and together, we will change the world.
