The Verbal Life

Some people lead verbal lives.
Most of their time is taken by words,
they talk, they read, and they write for most
of the day. When they are not conversing
face to face, they are on the cell phone, or
at the P.C.

When alone, and not talking, reading or
writing, they read the mental scroll which
unfolds words on their mental screen. They
don’t feel alive unless their lives is being
translated and narrated in words.

And so the profundity and mystery of things
escape them, and they live hungry lives, yet
ever chewing on empty words.
