We Need Words to Hold Us

Sometimes, when the state of my combox makes me weep and I despair for the lost art of reading comprehension, I watch Taylor Mali. First he brings the funny,

then he brings the beauty, and I remember why I write at all.

Language and content warning on this one. But stick through the first minute, or start it at the 1:10 mark. It’s so beautiful.

    Oh man does that combox pain me. I am sorry I went to peek to see what the fuss was about. Ouch. I’m so sorry.

    I love both of those videos. I’d seen the first before. That second was new to me, though. Thank you so much. Gorgeous.

    Why is it that you write? To give yourself a nice, snooty pat on the back when you trick dumb yayhoos with ostensibly no reading comprehension skills into thinking you are serious because they didn’t know they were reading the new Patheos version of the Onion? That sounds a bit harsh, but then again, I lacked the necessary lense of cynicism for your last post (because for some funny reason I’ve started to think there’s a bit too much of that to go around) and I don’t want to make your tender heart weep again.

    Really, this just sounds rude, not some beautiful tribute to your love of words.
