Communication is probably one of the hardest thing I have to do in a day. Trying to get across what I mean. Explaining a thought. Talking in a series of words to get across a point. Creativity is a way to overcome that hurdle or I guess you could say, just finding another way of communicating a thought. 

I know, often, that we do not look you in the eye, but we say so much with our eyes. 

I know that we often times can say in an artistic way  what we cannot say with our mouths.

I chose photography and drawing. I would draw and draw when I was a kid closed in my room.

I would also underline a lot of words in books to get feelings across that I could not begin to say with my mouth. Books helped me to understand feelings. It took abstract concepts and helped me meaning to them with concrete examples.

Watching others helped me understand communication. I watch others communicate and how they put thought to voice. Which, I still am not good at. I watch my daughter put words to air as if it is nothing. She is so articulate with her voice. I tried to explain a television show hte other day and it was like broken english. Hardly understood. My thoughts were so broken, she picked it up and filled in all the gaps.

I’m thankful for those around me who can do that, but I can find other ways to communicate.

Thanks for listening. We are talking.Image

    I can relate to that. I have a hard time articulating my thoughts, trying to find the right words to get across what I’m saying but too I have a difficult time remembering certain words fit for the sentence that are common to me that I have known for years or decades. But I too enjoy art as an escape mostly to express my talent, another side of me that I cherish out of all my abilities. I haven’t drawn a portraits in a while, just mainly random pictures and some not so random.
