Little Gems

There is something deliciously challenging about trying to get a message across in just 100 words. It is giving me a heightened awareness of words and the way I put them to use. I carefully pick and choose, mapping out short cuts which will tell the full story but with minimum fuss and frills; a sort of literal separation of wheat from chaff. We are often wasteful with words. Our conversations dotted with unnecessary gap fillers- easing over embarrassing silences with awkward or mindless statements. Now, words are becoming like priceless little gems – to be discovered, guarded jealously, used sparingly.
