MJ @ emjayandthem with her post titled Beautiful People: “Traveling this week for business, I found myself tossed into a sea of humanity. Rolling suitcases. iPhones & ear buds. Cell conversations continuing as doors are closed. Electricity charging areas in airport waiting rooms. Subtle manners not consistently displayed.

The rhythm itself is my own – everyone who writes, from poets to sales people have their own rhythm. It’s a feeling of when something works and something doesn’t. No book can really teach you that. So when I came across “anaphora”…I found it intriguing that there was actually a word for the process that I’ve long admired in powerful speakers and writers.” Read more here.
