A Day of Sharing Words...

LK Ludwig  has an amazing project idea that I will definitely be partaking in and I hope you will as well.  I am posting her e-mail that has been sent around to various art groups:


A Day of Sharing Words
The idea: We have words that touch us, move into our hearts and
resonate, creating a feeling, taking us some place- past, present,
future- perhaps some place we have never been and may never go, but
for whatever reasons, the words pulse in our blood. Meeting new
words, new poets, new poems, new ways for my heart to beat, is an
intruiging concept. Want to go on this adventure with me? It will be
easy to travel along.
Many of us already do this sharing; this idea is just to help us find
each other and hear the words we have to share.
The Date: Wednesday, November 19.
The Plan: on your blog, post a poem that moves inside you, touches
you, reaches you. (quotes and song lyrics also welcome). Include
the author (or composer or musician) and source (book, album)-
perhaps also the amazon link if there is one. no explanation
required, no other revelation about the poem you are choosing is
One last thing- Perhaps add an image. a photo. a video. a painting. a
collage., if you would.
Come here to this post.

Add a comment with your link.
I'll create a typepad page with the links, so others can hear the
rhythm of the words, see the image and share in the experience.

The Request: If you are intrigued enough, post on your blog about
this Day of Sharing Words- encourage your friends to post. Who
couldn't use a few new poems in their treasury or new songs in their
hearts? How cool would it be if we coud get dozens of bloggers to
share on the same day!? What an anthology that would make!!!


I already have my chosen poem - it is one that I have loved for quite sometime...I can't wait to see what words move you....
