Say It

When you say it out loud it may be misheard, misunderstood, misinterpreted or misapplied. The magic and the menace of putting it out there is what happens after. Maybe it’s a marvel we didn’t plan or anticipate. Maybe it’s a mess we didn’t intend.

It’s still worth the risk, though. Every time.

One thought on “Say It

  1. Yes, it’s worth the risk. I remember leading a writers’ group in which our time to talk about what we wrote was often punctuated by someone saying “Well, I don’t know why I wrote this, but here it is.” Then that person would read what she’d written. Someone else always (always!) said, “I know why you wrote that. It was just what I needed to hear.”
