Thematic Photographic # 135 - Letters -- Blue Glue

So many letters calling and only a couple more days left to do it.  So if you want to play along go here
http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2011/02/thematic-photographic-135-letters.html

This post is not to be confused with "bum glue" as Australian novelist Bryce Courtenay coined as meaning "Sit on your butt and create," and I won't mention the urban dictionary definition ever!  But, if it weren't for letters tossed expressively into words......you'd miss their necessity and importance of being a main ingredient within our complex lives..... don't forget to read the signs...... along your way.

Life's ring.......It's there for your taking
What is this thing named, "Blue Glue?" Blue being my favorite color, and that of the sky and water, and relates to the beloved "blues music"  and of course "blues clues"... and ranks above most other colors and we all understand how glue sticks!


Words make us ponder, laugh, recall memories, contemplate, understand, cry, angry, investigate, somber, scared, reach out, careful..... it's endless what words can do to us....we can only hope they never stop.




From within the magic seen inside "The Field Museum, Chicago"......Words, symbols...are forever the glue that ensures communication....without them we'd be lost.......and forced to scratch our way through the walls of life ......
Lock your heart around anything that makes you sing, and dance....and live......
Stop where you are right now. Look around at the letters put into words that are warning you, calling out, tempting, directing, announcing if not for them would one know which way to journey?

If you haven't heard the music in your heart.....try some good old fashion blues.......are you dancing yet?
In keeping with tradition, the House of Blues Chicago displays the "Crazy Quilt" and keeps a metal box of mud from the Delta Mississippi underneath its stage.


Often times we find ourselves searching for the words to lead us....



Words are the fabric, the blue glue (if I may coin a phrase) within our daily lives, sticking, forming shape....so hooray for those words that keep us clothed or driving the right way...or who knows what may happen!

Wicked post. Isn't it amazing that authorities combining letters into words manage to make a place seem less inviting.
