The Scribe writes because…

Language may very well be the most intricately woven structure in the universe. It fascinates me.

In first grade, on the first day of school, I was stunned by the emergence of a sudden thought I completely and instantly grasped, though I did not understand how it could exist in a seven-year-old brain. The instant we master the written and spoken word, I thought, we delve into a realm of nuances and contrasts we then use to qualify daily experiences. This can lead to community or separation. This is powerful, potentially dangerous stuff.

In high school and college, I loved the study of philosophy, rhetoric and Latin. However, by the time I attended University, I realized that the classrooms I had frequented were relatively void of books.

Upon leaving University, I filled the back seat of a rented car with great classics from the likes of Twain, Dickens, Balzac and Hugo and drove to Vermont for a solo escapade. I spent the next two weeks visiting various river banks, woods and clearings and reading, reading, reading in each peaceful setting. I emerged from this experience with a love of words and social etiquette, a love of structure and carefully crafted thought.

In all that we do, in every capacity and every industry, everything is a form of expression; everything is expression. There is no industry, no commerce, no enterprise without language.

Give me a workshop, an office, a service-oriented business, a retail store, a company president, a supervisor, a car salesman… I see the written word as training tool, diplomacy tool, organizational tool, information tool, corporate image tool and most of all, as a building block.
