Finding common ground

by Jules Masterjohn

ommunication is a delicate process. Many of us are practiced at and comfortable with sharing our thoughts in words, usually spoken but also written. There are times when words carry weight and their impact can be powerful. Words can create concrete ideas and fixed meanings. Words can draw us together and words can divide us.

Visual images can communicate in ways that words cannot. We each bring our own interpretation to an image and a picture can offer as many meanings as people who view it. Art has the ability to communicate on many levels and speaks to all aspects of our human beings.

With these thoughts and the upcoming election in mind, this week I offer a picture in place of my usual 1,000 words. •
