    Courtesy.

    The words for a Lady have to be as a soft music. These words have to bring tenderness, consideration, respect, listening and self-sacrifice. These words must be true, without ulterior motive, without the other purpose than to give what we feel. A badly placed word would not know...

    I Believe

    I believe silent words are full of power, maybe even more so than the spoken.  What words run through your mind?  Be conscious of them, gain control and you gain power untold.

    Dissonance.

    Dissonance is word of the day. I've had to read and write it a lot today and every time I do, I enjoy the way it sounds, which is ironic considering it's meaning. But when you add the word 'cognitive' in front of it, well that's just like a party for my tongue!
