{bon mot} monday | frankly . . .

on 04-27-2015




I’ve always liked the word damn. It all started with the rush I felt as a 4 year-old belting out “baddest man in the whole DAMN town” as I danced next to our priest at a celebration in the church basement.




This combination of 4 letters (including the sublime “mn” duo) adds punch and passion without crossing the obscenity line —  That’s a damn shame. Hot damn! Damn straight! 


And then there’s standing up for whatever we think is worth a damn. I’m drawn to people who care with enthusiasm and live their lives like they mean it. That conviction and the courage to show it is contagious. Frankly, the world needs more people who give a damn.
