The Power of Words
Words are potent. The PenIs mightier than the sWord. One Simple Word, “No,” can render the sWord imPotent, stopping creation in its tracks. Words are magik[all].
This show was/is/will be about the words, the lingustical constructs, that we string together with our lingual extensions, our tongues [download free 32k version]:
The quest for truth and beauty, and the multiple uses of our tongue are intimately related. We may not be able to utter the name of God (om), but we do apply our tongue liberally in pursuit of both truth and beauty. As the “Stealing Beauty” image [below] demonstrates, one minor lingual misstep on the quest to connect to our creator may lead you us to the truth instead, and that truth is inevitably, shit.
What effects have the words of others had on you? What effect have your words had on others? What are the shared burdens of the recipient and the messenger?
If you don’t seize control of your own mind, and become a victim of events, then you may not only find yourself surrounded by events that control you, but also looking at a face in the mirror you no longer recognize as yourself. Roger Waters created an excellent album and a wonderful movie about just that: The Wall.
Of course, there was a lot more to the show. Many [expected] tangents going off on unrelated stories, and a few unexpected slips bringing us back to the core thread.
Live. Love. Learn. Grow. Stay your ReAction. Choose your words WISELY.
