You made some really good points here!

The first half--the part written in first person--is more engaging than the second half. I think it's just more interesting to read anecdotal material and draw one's own lessons from it, than to be given advice.

The part about "yonder" really appealed to me, and showed your authentic voice--very nice.
A nice lesson we all could remember!
Thank you for sharing your perspective on the important subject of self-expression. I appreciated, too, your thoughts on the power of words--either spoken or written.
