“One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple.” — Jack Kerouac
I recall through the first phase of my education, attempting to put thoughts to paper in impressive, inspiring fashion. Unfortunately, my thesaurus mentality bloated out words and sentences into barely parseable fragments, requiring study and broad consideration.
Professer Kerber liberally sprayed red ink marks across my illuminated words, rendering them a scrap heap, forcing me to rebuild using the simplest words, the easiest phrases. Clarity he said. Impress with your thoughts, not the manner in which you express them.
