I am committed to crafting with W O R D S, formulating them at source and coaxing them through twists and turns until arrival, intact, at their destination.

Words have great potential to inform, encourage, and heal; yet they can cause much damage with unintended ambiguity, unacknowledged ignorance, or intentional un-truths.

I craft words, bringing attention across subjects …

  •  to impart information; spark an idea;  cause a shift in perspective;
  •  to explore a concept, an event, an instance;
  •  to trans-create in a language different, that is faithful  to, yet enhances the original tongue;
  •  to enhance an author’s creative story or message;
  •  to establish an action plan or a systematic procedure;
  •  to review the execution of an event or a project;
  •  to set in clear and flowing written form, other people’s hastily dictated words.

Words, spoken truthfully, carry weight.  Words, set in writing,  go the distance,  geographically and chronologically, with repeated visual visits until they are embedded in deep corners of memory.

The healing power of words is in bridging understanding and averting discord.

With clarity and empathy, we can  choose just-the-right words, string them in just-the-right sequence, and express them in just-the-right tone to arrive as a firm and gentle truth in the reader’s mind and heart.

  1. Who was it who said: “Of all the arts in which the wise excel, nature’s chief masterpiece is writing well?”

    • Thank you Rody for sharing this wonderful, lyrical quote and for introducing Andre Breton, artist, author, pro-peace activist. It is said that he had innovated ways in which text and image could be united through chance association to create new, poetic word-image combinations. Had he lived during the current period he would have masterfully dominated blogs and infographics.

  2. Cheers to the wordsmith in you, Luwee! May thousands of healing words bloom and unfold more from your spirit.

    • Gary Zukav in Seat of the Soul said, “You create your reality with your intentions.” When we are aware that it takes words to shape our intentions, then we begin to truly appreciate its manifesting power. Thank you for your well wishes, Rem. Mizpah.

  3. Thank you, Lilian. Wishing you more of what you are doing – sharing knowledge and options with others and living a meaningful and fun life.

  4. I love the thought of words having a deeper meaning, carrying energy and emotion. Thanks for stopping by at my website by the way:-)!
    Wish you all the best always!

  5. There is power in the 26 letters of the English alphabet! You do exceedingly well in mixing, combining, blending them into words that are wisely and carefully chosen to form sense and meaning. Your paragraphs flow into the next seamlessly. You have the skill, the talent, the sensitivity. You have the gift. Keep writing. We’ll keep reading.

    • Your remarks are so gratifying, a perfect example of the warm connection that words can bring. If, as you say, I am able to string the letters of the English alphabet in a creative manner, it is because the universe has generously provided a wealth of subjects from meaningful real life and virtual encounters with such soulful, appreciative individuals. Thank you.

  6. I’m delighted with your passion with words. Go for it.
    There is, however, a downside to words. There are those who claim that in terms of total impact of a message, words account for only 7%. The entire balance is non-verbal communication. In a manner of speaking, communicating principally with words is akin to going from one place to another via a pathway that is strewn with hidden landmines! Communicate not only in such a way that you can be understood, but in such a way that you cannot be misunderstood.

    • I appreciate your encouragement and caution and I agree that words do not fully express nuances of feelings and other meanings. The alternatives on the online medium are images, sound, music. Maybe it’s time I branch out to a site without words and call it AWAY with words.

      • Hahaha, that’s a perfect play on words…which only a skilled wordsmith can concoct! Great humor, Luwee! Do carry on with your passion and mission. I pray/wish the best for you…and the people whose lives you touch. Be blessed. Namaste.
