Sorta. Actually they might be nearly next door to each other, like in other words may in fact share a mutual border, but I hear tell that oftentimes, those who make the journey have been known to go 'round about, here & there, and every which way before actually arriving at Point B (from their initial origin, it is assumed, Point A). If you know what I mean. [Image Can Not Be Found]

Personally, I prefer Wordiness(ConsiderRevising)dom. Though PassiveVoice(NoSuggestions)awanda is also very nice this time of year.

In some languages (I have heard tell or maybe I picked this up during my travels)...perhaps it's a geographical variant of Montezuma's Revenge...such a state (and by that I mean status, not geopolitical or governmental) of being is called Diarrhea of the Mouth. I caught mine while writing for a Masters; by PhD it had become chronic(al). 

Now, it's fun to compose what Powers-that-Be would red line.

As someone who actually has to read masters theses and doctoral dissertations for purposes of summarising their (so-called) content, I  wish someone WOULD do some red-lining. Editing is becoming a lost art.
