Sometimes there are no words

Sometimes there are no words for what you heard. Sometimes there are no phrases, or sounds, or images that you can paint with words to descrie what you see. Sometimes you cannot take the photograph in the mind and translate it to print.

Right now I am listeing to Gen. Douglas MacArthur's "Duty, Honor, Country" speech given to the cadets at Westpoint and know that I will have a hard time finding the right words to convey MacArthur's emotion or inspiring words to those listening.

His voice reminds me of those that you hear reading the war novels on audiobooks and despite the grim beginning and imagery I am lulled into sleep.

Question of the Day: How do describe what you do not have words for?
