The written word is a powerful tool. It’s infinite, everlasting in a way. And sprawling. In the digital age, email or posts can be on any number of unintended electronic devices. It can be forwarded, screen scraped, found in the cache of mobile devices, discovered on server backups, and the list goes on. So, write down your thoughts. But ponder them too. Be proud of your communication, even if it shows up again years later.
