You’ve never read this before.

October 7, 2009

You’ve never read this before. You’ve never even thought about this before. In my hand I hold a tiny mix of words, a few thousand words, lines on pages, images and dreams created by simple writing and you’ve read a million little words but you have never read this. It is right here, right now. The story is alive with melody and rhythm, and while I may be a punctuation outlaw – who cares – I have written this which you have never read. Now think about all the stuff you’ve read, all the birthday cards, the screenplays, the menus, the street signs, the lame font in the Ford F-150 commercials, the novels which have maybe even changed the world, the textbooks in college, the maps in the glove compartment…think about it all. And now turn around and click ‘refresh’ because of this: what I have written, you have never read. It will surprise you to no end. It will mystify you and confuse you and make you slightly uncomfortable and maybe even giggle, but it will be new. Because while it is completely new, it is really nothing new at all. It is the simple story of a man and a woman and their children and the impact a PLACE can have on one’s IDENTITY. And the impact MUSIC can have on one’s PLACE and IDENTITY. And the impact LOVE can have on the MUSIC of one’s PLACE and IDENTITY. And the impact TRUST can have on the LOVE of the MUSIC of one’s PLACE and IDENTITY. And the impact HOPE can have on the TRUST of the LOVE of the MUSIC of one’s PLACE and IDENTITY. And the impact TRAVEL can have on the HOPE of the TRUST of the LOVE of the MUSIC of one’s PLACE and IDENTITY. You have never read this before, but that doesn’t mean you’ll ever really want to read it either. Will you?
