I have always had a deep passion for language; the sound of eternity's vocabulary. There is so much power in the structure of a word; the habit worn by our expression. It is as if there is some sacred text hidden within each sound that resonates from the universal vocal chords that calls out to those who are of the same kin. This universal order decrees divine testimonials of an eternal language.
At night this holy force is designed with powerful sentences each punctuated by bright green luminous periods. In each eternal verse that is scripted in the night sky are the holiest of languages; the sacred text of creativity.
There are hundreds of books written about the words that you speak and the thoughts that you think. The Holy Bible begins with the creation. I happen to be one of those who believe what the Bible says.
