This blog is for everyone who uses words.

The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

New Year Resolutions: a rant.

Yes, yes, New Year Resolutions hardly ever last the year.

And, yes, we all know that putting a wish for self-improvement formally into words is no guarantee of anything.

And, yes, all right, I know we're all surrounded by people telling us that the Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions: but, as a matter of fact, the Road to Hell is actually rather seldom paved with good intentions.

Yes, that's right, folks: it's generally paved with the bad ones.

So good luck with the New Year Resolutions - and remember that putting things into words actually is magic, just a little bit.

Word To Use Today: intention. This word comes from the Late Latin intentus, a stretching out.
