The Impact of Words

When a John Troust quote, "I can't read lips unless they're touching mine", was posted on twitter, it elicited an unexpected, yet interesting emotional response from me... so I commented that I liked it. I didnt dwell on the reasons that I liked the quote until someone jokingly asked me why I was so touched by it... After laughing, I read the words again. "I can't read lips unless they're touching mine"

Immediately I felt myself responding to the words. Tenderness, longing, and I admit an electric and primal reaction ocurred all at the same time. Yet this vibration then resonated deeply within my heart. The heart interpreted the feelings - then the primal reactions were tranferred into a warm glow within.

It is always fascinating when such powerful reactions are inspired by so few words.


  1. I agree with you Debra! Some people are actually good in expressing complicated feelings in a few short words! Naturally attractive or talented? I think you can feel sincerity and the feeling of the sincerity is stronger if matched with actions.

    Will be sharing this post later (as soon as I get my work done)!! Happy Day Debra!!
