This month's question for the Writer's Support Group is: What was an early experience you had where you discovered that language had power?
When I was in the second grade, my teacher read the story, James and the Giant Peach. I became so entranced in the story, that I couldn't wait for the next day when she would continue. It made me realize that words had the power to transport one into a fantasy world where a reader could actually care about what happens to imaginary characters.
Have you ever had an experience where you realized that language/words had power?
I don't really have a story today, so instead, I'll just share another recording from the recital I did. I'm joined by Allen Baston on piano.
