"All great stories are told by those who can tell them. Stories have been told for years, some misinterpreted through text or orally through conversation. There is a constant outlet of entertainment when one listens to stories of the past or present, some fiction and others nonfiction. 

I cradle this word, “punctum,” said by semiotician Roland Barthes. This specific word hinges on to imagery beautifully. This interlocking word, “punctum”, is a shared connection between the viewer and the image. In a way, the “punctum” tells a story through thought that verbal words can’t express. It’s the images that helps one feel nostalgic over a shared feeling. It’s a reciprocation, like reading a book, or cradling a child. The only person that will fully understand the way you felt at that exact moment is yourself. Barthes helps one get back in touch with those five special facilities of senses; sight, smell, taste, and touch.”

I have a cute pup on my lap who’s making it very difficult to get anything accomplished tonight since he’s interlocking his head around my arm.. Typing just got a little more challenging.
