I wanted to explore 'ink' with you. What follows is my commentary on the information that I gained from wikipedia.
"Ink is a liquid or paste that contains pigments or dyes and is used to color a surface"…When I write, I chose the words that I use to create or inspire you to create a vivid mental picture of the thoughts on our mind, desires in our hearts, or feelings we are experiencing. Often, this is hard to express in words, and an effort must be made.
"Ink can be a complex medium, composed of solvents, pigments, dyes, resins, lubricants, solubilizers, surfactants, particulate matter, fluorescers, and other materials"…These ingredients are often translated into the influence of the words, from within and without. As above (spiritual influence) and so below (earthly connections). What is holding the thoughts together (goals) or attempting to separate them(distractions)? Smoothing them over or making them stick together or to something? Shining for attention? Solid in my convictions? I see these ingredients in the flow of finished writing for the day. I am usually amazed at what the words reveal to me about the way I am prepared to face the day, or how the day has influence the words in the similar fashion. I love how the answers motivate the questions.
"The components of inks serve many purposes; the ink’s carrier, colorants, and other additives affect the flow and thickness of the ink and its appearance when dry."…The very foundation of what I hope to inspire is legacy…the 'dry' ink, with all of the history, influence, creativity, hope and peace that writing serves in living your legacy.
