The Written Word

I love writing even though the most I do is on this blog--sad! Here are 2 things I have always loved:

I have the poster framed in my office. One of the best ad campaigns ever. Whatever happened to this type of advertising? This is part of the reason I majored in advertising. Oh to be young and naive. It's actually more fun to be older and jaded. hahaha

Here is another blurb I love written by Josephine Hart--the first paragraph from the book 'Damage' (too bad the movie was bad!):

There is an internal landscape, a geography of the soul, we search for its outlines all our lives. Those who are lucky enough to find it ease like water over a stone, onto its fluid contours, and are home. Some find it in the place of their birth; others may leave a seaside town, parched, and find themselves refreshed in the desert. There are those born in the rolling countryside who are really only at ease in the intense and busy loneliness of the city. For some, the search is for the imprint of another; a child, or a mother, a grandfather or a brother, a lover, a husband a wife or a foe. We may go through our lives happy or unhappy, successful or unfulfilled, loved or unloved, without ever standing cold with the shock of recognition, without ever feeling the agony as the twisted iron in our souls unlocks itself and we slip at last into place.

It makes so much sense! : )
