The Power of Words

I’ve often considered myself a wordsmith of sorts, a wielder of power at the end of a pen, a clickity-clacker of buttons at the end of my fingers. But to see the sheer strength of words laid out in a wonderfully apt movie short makes me understand how much power there can be. How one word can take on so much meaning…so much beauty…and pain…and happiness…and subtle hilarity.

This video comes from the amazing group at NPR’s Radiolab…a great podcast/radioshow in itself. But I couldn’t pass up mentioning this one.

How many words do you get?
