The Power and Art of Your Written Words … Can Change Lives!

They are awesome, did you know that? Those creative words you say and write.


So why and what is it about the power of words? Studying the structure and meaning of words (in all languages) is called Semiotics but there is also a field that studies not only the words we communicate with, but the biology of it –  biosemiotics.

Scientists have learned that when we communicate we are altering (at a biological level) both ourselves and our perception regarding the nature of things.

Distinguished biologists (Ernst Mayr, Manfred Eigen) believe we are evolving in the physical world as the result of our “shared” communications.


There is no doubt that language is central to our grasp of the world we live in.

So when you write, blog and communicate do you fully realize the potential you hold in your hand when sharing an opinion or idea; a short story, (article, book, play, poem, song)?  Do you know you may be changing someone’s life with your words? Heavy stuff, huh!

What we say and how we express ourselves is becoming more important than ever today. Our words, (to an ever expanding degree )are the collective bi-products of world-wide social interactions. And while we’re connecting and perhaps influencing each other, most importantly, we are evolving into all we are meant to be! And I … well, I personally think that’s wonderful!

Whether you’re blogging, tweeting, singing on YouTube or exchanging thoughts and ideas on any social media platform, you are affecting those who read/hear your words.

Thank you, to all of you from around the world, I feel the meaning in the words you are writing, the thoughts you are sharing, the love you are sending.

They are beautiful and important – your words – so keep writing, keep sharing. Don’t stop! Your thoughts and ideas are unique to you and this creates a purposeful value for others. Every word you write is building towards our Global future together, as one people, on one planet – An International Community growing and coming together through the power of our words.


Thank you for stopping by, have an excellent week to come and as always remember … take care of you.

With much regard and affection,

The Potential power of your written word …


word power

We know the power of the spoken word is mighty. After all, that’s how politician’s get elected (well, sort of … lol). When they deliver a speech to their audience (almost always a pre-prepared, well written one, I might add), it can, sometimes make a significant difference in the outcome of an election.

The written word (read – not spoken) is equally powerful but usually in a more measured way. It entertains,search engine suggests, cojoles, encourages, explains, excites, fascinates, and so on.

Finding just the right words for your written piece (document, story, article, book, poem) can be a challenge.

Locating potential possibilities of words is very easy today. Simply browse online using your favorite search engine and look for all the variations of the potential word(s) you may want to use. Just, please, don’t plagiarize (take the work of someone else and pass it off as your own).

As you write, think about what you’d like your written piece to achieve. Does it make your point? Is it clear and understandable? Does it flow? Is there a beginning, middle and end?  Have you edited for grammatical errors and typos, we all make mistakes during the typing process. Did you enjoy the creative process?

love you

If you believe you’ve accomplished these things (with your written piece) then publish – On your blog (web) site or in one of the numerous places (remember to research – search engine … hello?) online that are actively looking for fresh written material (some of you will be surprised how many websites are currently looking for new content “every day” to share with their viewers/readers).

Good Luck ~ may the written force be with you,
