What is language?
We think of language as words, sounds, communication devices. Verbal sentences that form a meaning. A way to interact with the world. And yes - language is all that. But it also exists prior to words. In our bodies. Our movement. Our dreams. The way in which we live our lives is language to me. It may not be the official Webster dictionary or whats not definition of language. But when I think of language as a form that exists prior and beyond words - it opens me up to look at it as music. As a journey. A journey from point A to point B. Language is a transition, a transmitter, a train making its way towards the next stop. We are not just speakers of one-language, or bi-lingual- or tri-lingual, we all have multiple languages in us. Many ways in which we operate. Our journey takes place in all of those ways of being. Ways of connecting. To sum it up with words is simply doing injustice to the multi-faceted brilliance of LANGUAGE.
In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
