RAMBLINGS: Communication Mosaics

Words crystallize perceptions. Until we label an experience, it remains nebulous and less than fully formed in our thinking. Only when we name our feelings and thoughts do we have a clear way to describe and think about them. But just as words crystallize experiences, they can freeze thought. Once we held our perceptions, we may respond to our labels rather than to the actual phenomena.
