Family trait - of the women anyway - we're New England stock, think Kate Hepburn. I've had to learn tact as an adult, especially with clients. Doesn't help that most of my career, I've been told to be as terse and direct as possible in my writing.
Oddly though, when I offend someone it's usually because they misconstrued my meaning. So maybe I'm not as direct as I think.
I am a dreamer of words, of written words. I think I am reading; a word stops me. I leave the page. The syllables of the words begin to move around … The words take on other meanings as if they had the right to be young.
