grateful to all those who have contributed to the the remarkable success of Word Worth®:

Word Worth’s mission
is to publish Editorials and
Columns on subjects as diverse as xeriscaping, travel,
archaeology, and many others, and to present fine poetry, stories,
novels, and photography in the Arts section. The opinions
presented are those of the individual writers, and not necessarily those
of Word Worth. We do not shy away from controversial
subjects, but we believe in dealing with them respectfully and
rationally. In one of his relatively more recent concerts, Arlo
Guthrie said that over the years he had made friends that he might not
have expected to make initially. He concluded that there are two
kinds of people: those who care and those who don’t. He came to
realize that you can find both of those kinds on every side of every
issue. We concur with that sentiment, and hope to present ideas in
the spirit of enlightened searching.
We are honored to
have readers in more than 150 countries.
Word Worth's Awards
— we won awards every year we entered — 15 are the coveted Apex Awards and three of these
are the ultimate Grand Awards:
Word Worth photographer David Clark won the New York
Central Terminal Photo Contest Expo 2001.
Out of the mouths of babes come things their parents didn't
want you to know they said.
If we cannot discuss rationally and
respectfully the issues concerning our governance, this
democracy will not last.

When people are unhappy about something, they typically don’t
want to speak up because they don’t want to upset the apple
cart. The problem with that is that by the time they have to
speak up, there are a lot of rotten apples in the cart.
Use your talents to give
back to the Cosmos from the gifts that you've been given.

When the sun shines through the shade of our 120+ year
old lamp, it makes a perfect peace sign. The world has seen a lot of
wars since this lamp has been standing.
