As we reflect on why we write and move forward selecting some pieces for the re-purposing project, I wanted to share one of my favorite stories. It’s the story of Josiah and the full life he lives. More than the visual images of him playing baseball, listen to the words journalist Tom Rinaldi chooses. Rinaldi doesn’t use words decoratively. He doesn’t dress something up with an unnecessary adjective. He writes (and narrates) purposefully and intentionally.
Maybe, just maybe, we’ll find ourselves using language for purpose and with intention.
