Another one is "Epiphany." I like its meaning and the "fffff" sound, because it sounds like and feels like the wind. It puts me in mind of the Chapter of Acts' Upper Room, where the Spirit comes in like a Mighty Rushing Wind. Whether one calls it epiphany or inspiration, it is the breath of life.... it invigorates my soul..... Though I may not be of a religious bent, I do recognize that humans are as much spiritual beings as they are physical, mental and emotional.
In our American culture, we often identify ourselves to others by what we "do." I am right-brain dominate, so the "creative" dictates how I spend the majority of my time.
Yet, most of us ignore, don't even explore who we are.... from inside. You know, our value system, our history, our relationships and all the other things that are abstract. We identify ourselves by the tangible. For me, the Glass is NEITHER Half Full or Half Empty. It is ALL THE WAY FULL..... It is half full of the tangible (Liquid) and half full of the intangible (Air). Just as Life. Culture, Relationships, and Emotions are intangible, they're what define us as individuals and as a culture. And they are the first things that we refuse to acknowledge, that we deny are real..... yet they are HALF THE GLASS.
Humans just make no sense.
How's your glass? Do you keep it in the fridge or prefer it at room temperature?
