Found Words – Names and Places

I like words. Words are everywhere. We may ignore them – their placement, their meaning. We ignore their very presence. But every word that is placed somewhere, that is found, has a purpose and a meaning.

Everyone and every thing has a name. And every name a meaning.

We see this as art and we admire it. But do we appreciate the words? Do we find these words in our lives?

Subtle words, easy to miss.

Every place has its words, unique and waiting.

Found Words

Words are everywhere.

Sometimes they show up unexpectedly. Sometimes they dance, demanding to be noticed.

Sometimes they’re so common and disguised in the bustle of everyday life that even if they danced, no one would see it.

Sometimes they’re hiding in plain sight.

Sometimes they seem like just so much useless clutter. Sometimes they’re artfully arranged, full of hope and meaning.
