There is a certain magnetism to words.
Since infancy we have heard, seen, and felt words. They are the way we communicate our thoughts, our feelings, and our ideas.
Words can be interpreted in so many ways depending on a person’s experiences and perspective. For an author to convey what they see, it takes great effort and prowess. It takes time, patience, and lengthy consideration.
People love reading what pulls them into a new idea, world or perspective. Anything worth reading draws them into a swirling orchestration of words. Maybe it tugs on their heart strings. Possibly they bask in contentment. Some words may fire up their desire to improve. And sometimes they are seething with anger or falling madly in love.
Words send out their essence. They beckon to us. “Come, taste of this knowledge;” “Experience a new adventure;” “Open your heart;” “Consider this unique idea.”
We love it. We live for it. We want to understand. We want to be understood.
Hence, the magnetism of words.
