One word. Infinite meanings.
Language is such a beautiful tool to communicate the thoughts, dreams, and threads of our being. When this information is woven together, it creates an impression of our soul. We have come to throw words around without much consideration or precision, and thus they have become worn and bland. How can the word love, for example, encompass such an expanse of emotions, from love for a favorite flavor of ice cream to the deepest connection with another human being?
