Epiphany


No. I'm not in love with words. I'm in love with the manner in which words are said. I'm in love with the sounds, the tones, the voice, the breath that could be identified before each pause. I'm in love with the meaning behind the words. I'm in love with the motives. I'm in love with the way in which they are perceived. I'm in love with the voices that bring them to life and the hands that create their images. I like the way they look, the way they can make people feel and think and be.

No. I'm not in love with words. Not with them particularly. I'm in love with everything about them.

*************************************************

No. No estoy enamorada de las palabras. Estoy enamorada de la manera en la que las palabras son enunciadas. Estoy enamorada de los sonidos, los tonos, la voz, el suspiro que se identifica entre cada pausa. Estoy enamorada del significado detrás de las palabras. Estoy enamorada de los motivos. Estoy enamorada de la manera en que son percibidas. Estoy enamorada de las voces que les dan vida y las manos que crean sus imágenes. Me gusta como se ven, como hacen a la gente sentir y pensar y ser.

No. No estoy enamorada de las palabras. No particualrmente de ellas. Estoy enamorada de todo sobre ellas.

I feel the same way about words; writing is my third lung. What amazes me is that words engage so many of our emotions, that we can say so many things, without repeating ourselves. I discovered your blog today, I love its bilingual aspect :-) I speak three languages and I make do with Spanish, but it is only until lately that I've introduced my trilingualism into my writing. It feels good ;-)

Heeeeeeey, thanks for visiting!!

Awesome! Yeah, it feels great to be able to write in two languages. Sometimes it gets a little exhausting, at least for me, translating everything. But yeah, at the end, I love the work, I love how it looks, and I love that anyone I am able to speak to is able to speak to me and read me as well. Keep coming back! I'll visit you soon!
