Day 2207: More than words

There are more than words in this daily blog — there are often photos, like this one:

I often see those words, and more, on my commute to work. Here are some words to describe More Than Words.

More Than Words is a nonprofit social enterprise that empowers youth who are in the foster care system, court involved, homeless, or out of school to take charge of their lives by taking charge of a business.

There are more than words in this world, even for those of us who depend on words.  There are feelings,

facial expressions,

moments of reflection,

forgiveness,

consciousness, art,

human rights,  music,

and words that evoke more than words in us.

I have more than words for the International Human Rights Day Celebration that I witnessed last night after work. Here are more photos (and a video) of my co-worker Sterling and his daughter, sharing words and music with us.IMG_1525

Sterling (a/k/a Steis)  wrote “Lost for Words” after the violent death of a beloved cousin.   There are no words, but Sterling found some, to heal and move on.

If you leave words in a comment below, that is more than enough for me.

My gratitude for those who help me create these daily blog posts and for YOU is more than words can express, but I’ll try.

  1. What a fine organization described in this post, Ann. As a fellow lover of words know how much I appreciate yours, and the photos of your world’s words as well. Thank you. An excellent day to you.

  2. Your images and words fill my world with energy and intelligence, Ann.

  3. (◦′ᆺ‵◦) ♬° ✧❥✧¸.•*¨*✧♡✧ ℒℴѵℯ ✧♡✧*¨*•.❥

  4. Sometimes even words fail us, and at those times we need more than words. Listening to Sterling (a/k/a Steis) reminds me how much it’s not just the words that matter but the people behind them.

  5. Words are not enough without heart behind them. Thank you for sharing your heart along with your words Ann ❤️

  6. Great pics, my friend. And words are the creativity of the soul.

  7. I think words are so often overrated! Balanced with action, they can be powerful. 🙂

  8. Often words fail to express how we feel and how deeply we care
