Meaning can be misshapen as intent can be uncertain.

Goals and intents are tricky subjects for me.
Meaning can be misshapen as intent can be uncertain.
The bucket can both leak and meaning itself can be vacuous. I can try to pass you a leaky bucket of gasoline and by the time you receive it some will have leaked out and some may have evaporated.

You may smell the bucket and notice traces of vapor and comprehend some of my intent. But did I intend to give you a bucket of nothing? Or a bucket of gasoline and failed? Or did I intend to give you a bucket of vapor?

I can speak or write without entirely knowing what meaning I wish to convey _nor_ what are the appropriate words to choose. I go through this all of the time.

My intention is not always clear. My meaning is not always clear, even to me.

Sometimes when amplified back through someone who understands better than I what my intention is, then I can see my own intention or meaning with clarity, if I am very lucky
