About a LinkedIn article that’s changing my life.
This exposition brought me face front with my undying wish to recreate myself.
I’m humbled by the reinvention this discovery sparks inside of me. Examining the video vs. written word question woke me up to the fact that I get to turn hard work into play. A very special feeling, especially today.
Received my Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Utah in the post this afternoon. They wouldn’t let me in the first time, so it was very pretty indeed. As far as documents go, it made me realize you can never change where you went to school. Like parents, he said with a grin.
I celebrate as part of the school’s largest graduating class, and so inspired, wanted to share this LinkedIn article, Can Video Survive The Written Word? It felt like a beginning of greater things to come. I love words & video the same way I covet the use of all my senses.
Writing it tripped me over what I’ve always loved. Words & stories, and the people in them. Far distant shores we can scarcely imagine. Words are my stuff of dreams. They are sorcery & enterprise.
Think of something, anything. Words inevitably follow what we see.
That’s whippin’ cool to look at, but does my neck ache?
Though visuals obviously don’t always require words, we chat about visual experiences because words reconstruct and reexamine what we see. We visualize a good meal, but describe how it tastes.
Words take you anyplace.
Media comes come from tools they were designed to imitate and serve. Our senses. Writing informs and delights THE IMAGINATION, which I like to entertain as an audience of One.
“The more you know, the more you see,” a learned Visual Communication and Media Studies Professor, Julie Gay once told me. Writing helps me see.
Must add a word of praise & thanks to my friend, entrepreneur and gifted writer, Matt Wunderli for lending me the phrase, “refining fire.” Hope you enjoy the read.
