I'm into teaching my courses on life-writing - courses that are all about words. I was also seeing clients last night as a therapist - and there too its all about words.
We exist in our bodies as we live out our lives here on earth but we have a choice to live in another realm as well - in our words. Even God chooses to live through words. "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
This morning since I'm immersed in words -- I see the similarities between the sprinkle of city lights on the horizon and the sprinkling of words I am encouraging others to write out in their assignments.
Those words have the power to live beyond their immediate sphere of influence. Those living words can be seen from afar and even have the power to light up the night sky. "Words have more power than atom bombs." -Pearl Strachan Hurd
"My task, which I am trying to achieve is, by the power of the written word, to make you hear, to make you feel--it is, before all, to make you see." -Joseph Conrad
"Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless." -Mother Teresa
