Today's word is CONTROL.
But I won't look for its definition in the dictionary. I won't look because I won't be satisfied.
Because I am attached to MY definition of control. A definition that is negative, rigid, burdening.
A definition that is one-sided, missing something, doesn't the see the scope of it all.
Hard to love a rock that is so heavy.
But oh if I DO fall in love with the wheel, the torch, the engine... control will no longer be a dirty word. It would be just a word. A word that we choose to love. Hate. Or miles and miles and miles of feelings in between.
Here's for defining Control anew.
