Words are critically important for readers, writers, and publishers.
Words are the substance of knowledge, the means of communication, and one of the most mysterious fashionings of humans.
Publishers use words as measurments, writers use words as tools, readers use words as paths to meaning and subjective experience.
My personal favorite word is “Word” :-)
“Not everything that a man knoweth can be disclosed, nor can everything that he can disclose be regarded as timely, nor can every timely utterance be considered as suited to the capacity of those who hear it.”
~ Baha’u'llah, Gleanings from the Writings of Baha’u'llah, p. 176
I won’t use very many more words in this post but will introduce the video of Deb Roy showing a remarkable method he used to capture, in image and sound, his son’s learning of words.
