A friend of mine just made a quote on FB from one of todays papers. “I could read fast from an early age, but I didn´t understand anything. When I so did slow down I understood that the letters made words, that created pictures, that was put together so that they created stories that were larger than time and space”.
Quote from Stina Oscarson in DN.
Come to think of it, the images/pictures comes first. You open your baby eyes and there it is. The picture. The letters, the words and the stories comes later. So perhaps it is not so strange that today we communicate more with pictures than ever before.
“In the beginning was the word”. No, words came later. To help us describe all our images. All what we see.
Just a thought.
