Our language is rich with meaning that stretches beyond actual words. It is colorful, poetic, filled with images and connotations that take us on an imaginary journey every time we speak and listen. Like us, words are the outer shell. There is more to them than meets the eye. Words have roots and flavor. Take the word “diet,” for instance. At first glance, it brings to mind its initial definition: The kinds of food a person or community habitually eats. An underlying meaning refers to nourishment. At yet another level it means something used, enjoyed or provided regularly. Food nourishes most when shared. When we add meaning to the moment, that is when diet takes on its full flavor: Connection with others, joy and soulful nourishment. Children know this, because their imagination is not restricted by unbreakable rules.
