January 28, 2019 Day 28 – Monday

Writing is one of the longer lasting mediums of expression.  Being a musician, I’m used to the performance – where the players and the audience form a synergy and the performance changes, and even if you perform the same piece with the same people playing– it’s never exactly the same.

But writing– oh, there’s a big difference, and it’s probably why we take so long and spend so much time tweaking the story – it’s going to be around long after its release, long after we’ve moved on to another piece, another venue–

Words last, long after their writing– and if we’re lucky they reach down through the ages and still touch people’s hearts.

It is no wonder the Norse (I believe it was the Norse) believed that that which is written endures.

Today’s Prompt:  Performance is fleeting but words echo down through the ages.
