Three Words

A friend sent me his novel to read before publication.  I'm a sucker for any story involving baseball, so it's a treat.  I'm also enjoying the book because this writer loves playing with words and the results are unique and delightful.

So, with words on my mind, I thought of the power of Eric Garner's final plea:  "I Can't Breathe." Words that bring up whatever woeful story your life has to tell.  Or whatever empathy you feel for the next man's tale.

Three words worthy of a meditation on all of life itself.
