BLURB

I can be many things. I am synonyms, antonyms, adjectives and verbs. I am spontaneous and planned. I am what you want and they don’t. I can cause trouble but I also can bring a solution. I can be breathtaking in a bad...and a good way. I am real and also forced. I'm made of the “less” words; pointless, priceless, worthless, tasteless. I am some of ‘ful’ words as well; beautiful, meaningful, wonderful. I am monumental and minimalistic. I am often misinterpreted, mistreated, forgoten and lost. I am a vitality and verve of human emotions. I am a representation of the state of being and feeling. Delicate and strong, I am a part of history. I can be vibrant and beautifully timid. I am not ordinarily cheap nor extravagantly expensive. I am not a person but I am part of society. I can be simply plain or ridiculously complicated. I am an international language. I am art. And I can be many things. [Weronika Nossowicz]
