Dead or Alive


A word is dead
when it is said,
some say.
I say it just
begins to live
that day.

We know that words have meaning but do they have life? Emily Dickinson, the famous poet says ‘Yes!’ She references in her poem that words begin to live the moment we speak them.

When words are spoken they take on life – the life given by the speaker. Words make sounds. Sounds are vibrations that travel through the air and reach our ears. The things we say carry weight and have tremendous impact. Let the vibrations of the words we say bring life to someone in dire need of hearing something hopeful, something refreshing, something that makes them feel alive.

Notice: Every blog, product, post, or creative piece is designed as a reminder to speak words fitly spoken - words that encourage, heal, or help in some way. We create a place that speaks to the power of words and how words affect us in our everyday lives. Sometimes something funny, sometimes gleaning from history. Maybe it’s science-based, informational, inspirational, or just a story to share. It is our hope that everything Apples in Silver moves us toward being conscience of the words we speak as we aim to make someone’s day better with the words we say.
