The writings of the last few days have caused me to again consider the power of words. The power of the carefully chosen word, the painstakingly sculpted phrase, the meticulously constructed paragraph.
The force of a comma and a full stop. Alliteration and repetition.
At times my words flow easily, at others they don’t. At times, I write and rewrite and delete and copy and paste. Sometimes, my words come as verse.
Lately, I’ve began using a thesaurus, because the meagre words that flow from my medication and depression addled mind are not enough.
Today, Cate Bolt shared this video on Facebook. I share it with you, not for the political message, although you are welcome to hear it too, but to demonstrate the sheer power of words.
May it inspire you, like it inspired me.
