Wondrous Words

Words forming stories on my mind-canvas… The written words, letters drawn upon a page are, power; a force to be celebrated and dreaded. The images of the artist; words paint profound stories within paintings. Communication illustrated to teach; from these seeds we all grow. Words sketched with pen and brush can move mountains, change a life or heal; the Cadillac of tools for those who see and know how to utilize them in any situation. They are universally, multilingual. Words initiate communication, interaction is vital to the survival of all species. Symbols, images, a glance or gesture are all forms of word-art; cosmic graffiti. Words bond and obliterate, evoke emotion and soothe the soul. Words are invaluable allies and formidable enemies; both the life-of-the-party and a safe place to hide. Memoirs, adventures, challenges, hopes and dreams are all shared by words. Stories and tales experienced by writer and reader alike. The ultimate superheroes enabling their creators with the power to change the world or an entire universe. These inter-dimensional characters tumble from pen and brush to the page. When read out loud or spoken they serve as transformational powers. This transformative cosmic dust, a sacred gift used by rich and poor, alike. Uniform cuneiforms, precious petro glyphs and hybrid hieroglyphs paint eons of growth and wisdom. The human condition at-a-glance, making a vibrantly painted record of life.
