For my first piece on Phraseology, I went looking for something that spoke to my feelings about life and how words can evoke those emotions. My wife’s always harping on how we’re all living such fast-paced lives that we aren’t respecting aesthetics in architecture, living spaces, whatever. Honestly? She’s right. There are so many things of beauty all around us; sometimes we just need to stop and take a moment to appreciate them. And if they happen to not exist where we are, we get to participate in the most beautiful thing of all: we get to create them.
