Welcome to the May 16, 2011 edition of Lovely Words. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate spring than to find a cozy spot and read a few lovely words. Please, enjoy!
Byteful Travel presents How a Nightmare Changed How I Look at “Productivity” & My Most Precious Gift posted at Byteful Travel, saying, “I died this morning. And yet… I didn’t. The last thing I remember was looking up in the sky and seeing three missiles coming through the clouds. And then? A blinding FLASH.”
Shannon Bovey presents With Every “Goodbye”, You Learn posted at There Is No Forest, saying, “Sometimes, keeping old journals can really give you perspective…”
Jessica S presents Speaking of… Shakespeare posted at Literary Journey of a Freelance Writer, saying, “For many people, the first taste of Shakespeare’s use of language can be bittersweet. On the one hand, almost everyone has a sense of how uniquely beautiful his words flow. There is almost an aura that supersedes common communication. However, that same unique wordplay can also be rather frustrating at first. The way he almost uses the words as puppets to be played with, rather than tools to communicate with others, has been known to give people headaches now and then.”

Andrea McDougal presents Word Nerds Rejoice: Top 25 Blogs For Editing Geeks posted at Masters in Project Management, saying, “From crossword enthusiasts to journalists, editing geeks can be found everywhere.
