Part of Wordography’s POWER OF WORDS-POWER IN YOU series.
A common mistake people make with words is mistaking them for how they are described in dictionaries or on the internet.
Words ARE the most recent event in the chain of events also known as history, triggered, as far as our planet is concerned, by the birth of Earth 4.65 billion years ago.
In your own life, words are the event that separates your time before words from your time after words which didn’t happen when you spoke your first but when you recognized the sound of your own name at about age two, give or take a few.
In other words, words are the event that changed life on Earth, and your life also, more than any other event before or since.
Without words, where would we be now?
