IM-POR-TANT?

So, this is my first time blogging. Perhaps the trick is having something important to say. In whose mind, I wonder? Importance is in the "mind of the beholder," I guess. Will what I have to say matter to anyone else? How can my mind make a difference to your mind? Will you come away from this blog understanding yourself a little bit better? Will writing this blog help me understand myself better?

Words floating around in cyberspace, coming together to create meaning, on your computer screen,
How bizarre that the touch of my fingertips can produce a complex message sent across the air unseen,
On their journey to your desktop, do my words crisscross,
Do they bump into strangers as they jockey for positions lost?
Does my meaning spiral on its way, or does it dodge fireballs,
Of thoughts sent by you, crashing, splashing down the ebony falls,
of my hazy mind . . .

Did you just now let those words flow from your brain through your fingers for this posting? How lovely.

Do words help us understand each other a little better or do they create a misinterpretation in the readers mind?

Ahh, Sharolette, an interesting question. We really don't have much control over how an individual interprets our words, do we? All we can do is put the words out into the world in the best way we know how, and wait, or not, for a reader's response. Readers with experiences similar to our own, will probably interpret our words much as we intended. But nobody has identical experiences to another's, so there are as many interpretations of a reading as there are readers interpreting. But that's just what I'm thinking...
