One Million Colors...

So recently, I heard a song called "Spiders Web" by Katy Melua, and in it she says "The piano keys are black and white, but they sound like a million colors in your mind."  And I just thought, Wow!  That phrase is just, I don't know how to explain it.  There are some words in this world, simple words, that, when put together, create such beautiful sentences--and this is one of them.  

And I thought, that's how it is when you write.  The words on the page are black--stark and plain, little black lines that are colorless.  But when you craft and mix them to create a sentence, they become many different colors--forming a story, descriptions, and phrases, all in your mind.  Words are such fickle things.  Sometimes they don't fit in just the right way, or sometimes they just won't flow through your pen at all.  But when they do, when you succeed in forming those beautiful sentences, they feel like a million colors in your mind.


  1. So true... this is how I feel about writing.
