I created two wordles in a study of contrasts. Two common themes in language and life. Big and little. I noticed how I was feeling as I created the two wordles. The big wordle seemed selfish. These words that serve a useful purpose, seemed to leave no room for any other ideas. They almost stifled my imagination. They felt bold and boastful. I felt ashamed.
And as I created the little wordle, I started to feel voiceless. As though these important words would not be seen or heard above the noisy party that was on the other side of the page. I started to feel defeated.
I longed to create a third wordle, the middle ground. Where I could find satisfaction in balance, appreciation of the contrast between vibrant and delicate.
Funny the way this mind works. They're just words.
