How Do We Wear Our Words?


toysno2 edited8smTOYS No. 2, graphite drawing detail by Steven E. Counsell

Rembrandt said “a figure must do more than breathe, it must think.” Breath is hard enough Granny’s mouth is slightly open. An exhale in this drawing fragment shows a mouth wrinkled by a life time of speaking. Our words wear out our lips over time. And how we speak literally determines the kind of wrinkles we will make. We must speak carefully, our mouths will betray us. Kindness is best.
