Prompt for RWJ, Prompt 321

Have you had the experience and no words? I mean, all along you were trying to say everything in words. But when you say there’re no words, it seemed that the real thing is huge, it’s like a gargantuan thing. Or the scenery, it’s beyond words isn’t it? That’s because words are really secondary, not primary to what’s out there. What’s out there? It’s better shown in a picture or a moving image than in words. Might one think of words as inferior then? And my answer is, not if the words nailed what is happening so well that they became the net that gave meaning to the experience. And anyway can we go for prolonged periods in a wordless state I ask you? So for this final prompt for the Spring/Summer 2017 issue–submission closes today guys–it is to write about language and how we use it to show experience and that includes the feeling that went with it. Yup, you have today to write if you so desire.
