I was feautured in the Viral Cat February 2010 issue and I'm totally pumped about it! But the thing that excites me most has nothing to do with my three happy-fun mixed media pieces, rather the other artists and writers who were featured. While I do art, my passion will always lie overwhelmingly in words. The way syntax makes a story move and the diction that tells a tale. I love watching verbs weave in and out of choppy prose and eloquent poetry.
It gives me butterflies. Sort of like the poem "A Little Rotten" by Stephanie Bryant. It's beautiful and it's strong. It makes you think until the thoughts get so overwhelming they morph into a compilation of feelings. All wonderfully constructed and well worth the words that got you there.
Yes, I know a self-published 3 time cancer-surviving writer. And he's a great guy all around. While he writes a hundred times differently than I ever have, he has a great story to tell. A story worth reading: spiritual. And anyone that needs a book to read should take a look at his. He's just that cool.
So there's my little post on words. I love them.
