One Word

I know, I know. The title seems like one of those stupid ass surveys you get on myspace or facebook asking you to describe something using one word. This is not that, I promise. This post is about something different and profound, at least to me. I love looking up at the stars at night. I love to find Orion and travel down its belt to find the star Sirius and then meander up up up to the Seven Sisters and just Be. I love looking at the night sky because when I think about the vastness of the universe, how absolutely BIG it is I am reminded of just what I, my tiny little human self, is a part of. I then feel as if I can do anything, like i am meant to be anything and I feel renewed. I feel supernatural.


The Universe comprises everything we perceive to physically exist, the entirety of space and time, all forms of matter and energy, and the physical laws and constants that govern them. However, the term Universe may be used in slightly different contextual senses, denoting such concepts as the cosmos, the world, or Nature.

The word universe means One Word. That's the literal meaning of it. I think about the one word that God uttered to create the universe. What was it? As a lover of words I am more than aware of their power and their effects on us. I have, for years and years, sometimes blithely uttered, written or read without giving due respect to them. That's about to change though. My last post concerned books and how fed up I was with them. I am bored with the same stories, told the same way, by interchangeable people. But I have to back track on that now. I have to remember to restore the power back to the word and to use it in much the same way that God did.

Tonigh't I'm sure I'm going to do the same thing I do every night when there are no clouds: I will go outside and look up up up and out into the vast unknown. I will make sure to remember what I have written today and I will pray that the words will come. The words, oh yes, the words. And their power.
