What You Are

"What you are speaks so loudly, I can't hear what you are saying."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I saw this quote the other day, and there were so many different images that popped into my mind. Faces of different people I know, politicians that I read about or hear about on the radio, etc. But then I began to wonder about myself. Does my life speak in such a way that it mirrors my words and my speeches? When I preach? When I lecture a student? When I talk with my kids? Is there a strong enough correlation between life and speech that the message is amplified or muted?

Mini Mass Destruction!

I just wanted to say that I would like to have this book.

I am not necessarily asking for this for Christmas or anything... I'm just saying... Interesting Book!

I saw it at the book store the other day, and flipped through the pages. I am just glad that there wasn't a book like this when I was in school. I would have been in so much trouble!

Maybe I shouldn't advertise this. The first time I get hit by a spitball fired from a trebuchet...
