Found Exhortation?

When I was walking past this sign with a regular reader of my blog and stopped to take its picture, I said in response to the raised eyebrows, “found exhortation–triumph New York City.”

“It’s just the local Triumph dealership.”

“If one just read the sign, though,” without knowing of the brand, it surely could be read as an exhortation to New York City.”

What a perfect example of how hard it can be to understand each other through only language. That words can have so many ways of being construed shows how much empathy and compassion for ourselves and those with whom we are in communication we need to foster in order truly to listen and be heard.
