an ode to literacy
We all learn to read and write, at least in this privileged part of the world.
It becomes so normal, so natural to us that we tend to forget how wonderful this whole thing is.
With just 26 signs we can create worlds. Combining the letters in in all sort of different ways,
leaving some space inbetween here and there, creates stories that didn't exist before.
By deciphering these combinations we enter the minds of other people.
So, here is my artful honour to the alphabet, to reading, to the free word in fact.
