One of my favorite movies is "Finding Neverland" I love the whimsy as well as the sadness of the story. Near the beginning of the film is my favorite quote.
Just is a word that quickly reduces magic and possibility into nothing. Whenever I spend time with someone who is a realist they tend to use this word frequently. I think it's their attempt to categorize the world and make sense of something that perhaps they don't understand.
How often do you use "candle-snuffing" words?
