names of things

As I get older I become more and more obsessed with the names of things. 

The names of things matter. 

It's not just a bird; it's an Indigo Bunting.

It's not a flower; it's a Purple Loosestrife.

A. Name. In. Capital. Letters.

A name conveys something important, essential and meaningful. 

A name means "I apprehend you" in a way that's internalized and much, much more powerful.
