Human animals have a unique tool in communicating – words. What words we use and how we use them have serious consequences. This seems like a self-evident fact, but too often today words are used indiscriminately. As we have moved from the written vocabulary to the visual vocabulary, there seems to be less focus on the choice of a word. Quick notes on the internet or the loss of formal letter writing are now the first choice of communication.
As I establish this website, I realize that all my professional endeavors have involved some format using words – as a singer attracted to wordsmith lyricists, as an actor interpreting the writer's words to develop a character, as a writer choosing the word that is just right for a sentence, or as a teacher to make sure I convey the idea clearly.
I really enjoy words, the use of words, and how artists put them together.
