Just sayin


As a poet. I love words. The way they feel on the tongue. The way it sounds to the ear. The way it all just comes together in a hum of beauty. I am also an appallingly bad grammar student. That being said, I love language. I love the way it moves and changes. The way small tilts and tiny changes make meaning and inference. I love how you open a mind when you open a mouth. I love words. I love poety, but most of all, I love that when you say something, in just the right way, it touches someone and changes their life. They come back again and again, because something in your phrasing stuck in their head. Touched their mind and became, in some tiny way, a part of their history. I love it when someone says they had to come back to read something I wrote. I love that! Love, Love, Love it! I may not be able to use the proper comma, but I know how to speak in a language you can understand, if you are willing to put aside your sharpie, and take up my meaning.

  1. Hello,
    I love words, too, and Kinetic Typography is a cool way to execute them. I must give props to the person who made this; it’s such a long and clever video. This is very effective, though, and there’s plenty of truth in what Stephen Fry had to say there. Some people like to dictate what’s right or wrong, a good or bad way of writing–in a similar way that magazines encourage or discourage certain clothing styles.

    And just so you know, I posted a couple of KT videos as well. If you want, check them out in this post:

  2. Couldn’t watch the video — the Canada Curse lives on.
    I also love words, which is one of the reasons I love visiting your blog. But appallingly bad grammar? I have to disagree.
