Favorite Word:

context
Many ideas, statistics and entities are too stripped of potential richness in our abbreviated, high-speed sound-byte culture. I believe context is king; that it adds a richness and nuance that solitude necessarily excludes.

Least Favorite Word:

tolerance
Tolerance has a subtle connotation that implies rejection, separation, antipathy and disapproval. I believe that society too often strives for tolerance as an end-point, instead of as the briefest stage along a progression towards acceptance.
