For all our love of images, tv, youtube, and ipod, it’s the written word we still come back to. Yes, that’s right, you are reading this blog right now, even though there’s music in the background, and you have a cool piece of wallpaper as backdrop.
The reason why words and books have been so supreme is they are the tools of thought. Pictures can communicate, and do so instantly, but to reason, and analyse, convince, we draw upon words and language.
Our brains thrive on words, and clever, witty speech. Some of us would even own up to liking poetry, and songs would be nothing without powerful lyrics. It’s time we stopped dissing the all-knowing word, and acknowledge the inner blogger inside each of us.
