365 Gratitude Project – Day 126: Words

May 6, 2017

I’m grateful for language, for words, for communication. Words express ideas, thoughts, questions and answers. They give meaning, portray intent, convey emotion and narrate our inner and outer lives. I love the written word – books frame my life and reading other people’s words impacts my living in profound ways, shaping my thoughts, guiding my decisions and clarifying my worldview. I have traveled to many lands and worlds through the written word. I love poetry, the shape and flow of words, the way words are used as media to paint great landscapes and portraits of life and thought. I love the spoken word – I listen daily to the radio, I subscribe to podcasts and borrow audiobooks. I close my eyes and fall beneath the spell of voice and timbre and give myself over to story, song, the poetry and patter of words. I listen and learn about the world around me, politics, art, history, sports, music, science, people and places, joys and sorrows, life. This blog is an expression of myself in word, a glimpse into my psyche, my mind and heart.
