"The power of the word is real
whether or not you are conscious of it."
- Sonia Choquette

A productive day. I found this quote today quite randomly, I opened a book and it was there. I could go into a whole diatribe about whether it was fate, destiny or coincidence, but I won't. I will just say that it was appropraite to come to me at this time.

Working on my recent large format digital pieces, I am very focused on the words that I am using, at first they were very personal. Now the choices are many and varied. I was at Starbucks getting coffee and they have words everywhere. The words are words related to the marketing of a movie they produced about a girl in a spelling bee. But seeing them everywhere seems to elevate their power. In a time where songs do not elevate the use of language and words, but repetition - it is refreshing to see words that are used in spelling bees placed everywhere. I found many words that I wanted to use.

This project keeps growing and growing. I finished my first session of classes today. Next week, for the next 7 weeks I will be conducting another class using Art as the vehicle for people to get closer to their connection with themselves and their God. It has given me a new confidence, one which I hope will lead to publishing a book of creative/spiritual ideas and project lessons.

For the answer for those of you who want to know the meaning of the title word. Visit Starbucks, look it up in a dictionary, or ask a spelling bee champion.
