Cojo is a Spanish adjective. Sense two of the word means cripple. Which basically is what I am. Figuratively speaking of course.

I like words. I love their power. Sometimes I know of the ways and have the means to wield this power. But most often than not my figurative inadequacy keeps me from enjoying words. I keep trying to be utterly comfortable with them.

Reading is one way to be comfortable with words. Writing is another. Both require absolute concentration. Basic education and interest are enough to be a good reader of words. Very good education and research and perseverance are but three of the many requirements to be good at stringing words together for optimum power.

On to my love affair with words...
