Describing feelings with words is like playing the piano with a baseball bat....

    The problem, of course, lies in the difference between language and feelings. Feelings are a raw physical reaction that is hardwired into our earthly being. Words, on the other hand, are an abstraction of reality.

    I've always been an initiative-taking kind of person and tend to express my thoughts and feelings quite easily, but I do understand that not everyone can do this. Do you express your thoughts and feelings easily?

    (Incidentally, I also imagine someone could become quite deft at playing the piano with a baseball bat (or even two). icon_twisted.gif

    I easily express my emotions with my facial expressions, I confuse people when I talk.

    Therein though, lie the seeds of creativity. Composers and musicians express their feelings with music. icon_wink.gif
    Artists use whatever medium they work in, in lieu of words. I write, so find words the palette of colours to apply to my personal canvas....

    PS remember this quote? "If music be the food of love, play on."

    not in the least ... writing is one of the most therapeutic methods of working through a muddled mind. oratory conventions - i.e., speaking - are also cathartic. to each his own shall always win.
