Afraid of words

It’s a temptation to live like a dog. All too often, words I’ve heard have been used to hurt someone.
“Be guarded in thy speech.” And if you’re going to shoot arrows, make sure you’re on target.
I wonder if this is the appeal of pets - love without words to foul it up.


My cat meows a lot, and I’m not sure, but I think he’s complaining. I feel a little offended because we take really good care of him. :wink: But in all seriousness, I sometimes wish I could be one of those monks that takes a vow of silence. There’s something to that!

With words, once they are said, they are out there in the universe. You can’t take them back which doesn’t bode well for people with sz. Sometimes, when I am at work, I think all I need to say to someone is something inappropriate and I’ll lose my job. Words are precarious and I’m careful which words I choose.
