Yes, I find myself talking about 'energy' a lot. Even still, whether it is verbal, written, the
seen, the scene, the languages of motion, of touch, or other 'primal' languages, the 'energy' is
primarily poetential unless it is perceived and recognized; also, what is perceived and
recognized or interpreted is 'magical', since 'meaning' is created by the interpreter according
to their own lights and, perhaps, some shared and some not shared symbology, for instance; one
seeks to intrigue the other in their process of creating meaning, and to suggest possibilities.
There is a meeting place: the origin of the universe; whatever direction we go, if we go far
enough, we approach the beginning, the meeting place, the origin of the 'energy'.

Wicca means 'bending energy'.
