JANET CLARK SHAY
AUTHOR of This Side of Heaven and The Prayer That Makes a Difference
From hieroglyphics to texting, from Shakespeare to a warm Southern drawl, we use words in a varied and ever changing way. Whether we write them, speak them, sing them, or convey them through sign language, from the time we utter our first words, we need them in order to get our point across.
WordAtrium brings light to the colorful and varied aspect of words. As a writer, I enjoy unfolding the history, meaning, and power behind them. Join us as we pull out the next word or phrase from our endless supply.
"WORDS: SO INNOCENT AND POWERLESS AS THEY ARE, AS STANDING IN A DICTIONARY, HOW POTENT FOR GOOD AND EVIL THEY BECOME, IN THE HANDS OF ONE WHO KNOWS HOW TO COMBINE THEM."
- Nathaniel Hawthorne
