one small explanation

“I know nothing in the world that has as much power as a word. Sometimes I write one, and I look at it, until it begins to shine.” ~ Emily Dickinson

We both read. A lot. Books are the backdrop for the rest of life.

You know how one small sentence can make a difference in a day, a week, a month, a year? We do. Each week we take one small sentence from a book we’re currently reading and share how it changed the world for us – sometimes for just a moment and sometimes forever. A photograph, a few paragraphs, a hint at the scene beyond the curtains.

We’ll link to the writers we’re harvesting from so you can find the sentences for yourself. And we love hearing what you’re reading and how it’s changing your life – please do share.

Join us each week for one small sentence.

  1. I tend to write long sentences. Do you mind? What I mean to say that often I have complicated thoughts, for which I hope you will forgive me, because (though I’d rather be brief) sometimes complicated thoughts require complicated sentences; sometimes, they require semicolons.

    That was not a complicated thought. That was just a long sentence.

    Just funnin’ ya.
