It’s characteristic of us as humans to talk about things we have no business talking about in absolute words; every, always, very–so when I hear some white coat talk about the last frontier for humanity I liken it to that bad advertisement technique that Lucas employed for his vhs edition of the Star Wars Trilogy “For the VERY! LAST! TIME!”
Give me a break. In my mind the greatest hubris of humanity is to think that we have discovered all that there is to know about everything able to be known. This is the same principle for when somebody cusses to put power behind their statement. If what you are saying doesn’t come across as overly important, absolute words and a vulgar vocabulary are not going to the trick either. Calmly, clearly and briefly spoken truth is the way to go every time.

Chronological scaffolding is when what I write reflects who I have been reading. The chronological scaffolding of your work is like the ladder that changes the light bulb that shines a brighter light on your work for your reader’s/viewers benefit. It is the chair that gives a leg up to those who are a little too short to reach the top shelf without a little help. In essence: it is your favorite authors, poets, screen writers, directors, painters, sculptors and so on and so forth. Of the two kinds of scaffolding, chronological scaffolding is the kind that you do not mind to see as you are walking through the halls of a fine establishment, because you know it means that due diligence has been made to ensure a quality outcome.
