Don't act like you don't know me.Find your words and say it!

There's nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and open a vein. ~Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith



I remember the excitment of learning a new word.For me, it was like discovering a new word.Playing with the letters like they were little humans, with a soul and a heart.They were speaking to me, saying out loud their place in the word, like humans have a place in the world.I was becoming a friend of those words, some were so beautiful to me that i would repeat them for days.You would hear me talking by myself, saying the same word over and over again.It was like a game where the most beautiful words for me would be the winners.And day after day, i would discover other words.Other winners.A never ending game.
Some would not find anything special in a word.
"It's just a word.We use them to speak.Nothing more than that."
But i find beauty in those words.Beyond their meanings, there is beauty.In my opinion, every word is a flower.Lucky those who have a garden.And, sometimes, a word that has its letters arranged like there was a war, with nothing nice in the way you pronunce it or write it, has a meaning you could never think of.Others are such a pleasure to pronunce, yet their meaning couldn't have been more insipid.
In the end, i still find every word as a different world.And being able to play with them, that makes me feel so good.No, forget that.Good is not enough.I feel likge a little God.There are so many words waiting to be discovered, used and to have their beauty revealed, that time is not enough.Seriously.
I find this the most amazing thing in the world.We would be anything without words.Some things won't need words to be described, but those are few.For everything else, words are more than necessary.Like air for us.
And if Med students have coffee running through their veins, i have letters running through mines.

Lovely post, love the illustration. I love words and learning new ones. I especially love letters. Because tons of languages, the largest words possible to the smallest word imaginable all break down to 26 letters!

What a great quote to start!

Just love the cheeky drawing too.

Very interesting post, I'm afraid I'm not much of a writer, so I admire it a lot in others.

I love that you liked the music and posts at The Attic, thank you.

thank you so much for your lovely comments. you always write such honest, true words :) but it doesn't surprise me, even after reading this post, that you have a very special way with words. i agree with what you said there. i was like that, with words, ever since i learned how to read and to write. it's amazing what words can be, and do.

much love <3

o goodness. yiruma's kiss the rain. great piece.
anyway. your post was beautiful, but now it's reached the point of elegance high up there, it's like- i feel like walking in the clouds.. and i simply am touched to see your expression toward words because i find myself forgetting the value of each word sometimes.

Admiring your philosophical posts..

What beautiful words about words. I do agree, words are quite special. To quote Hobbes, they are among humankind's greatest achievement.
