However, I think that it is more than that. Last week, I was talking to my husband Nat about words vs pictures. Since he is a photographer and I am the psychotherapist, you can imagine which sides we chose. Although, he has stated very clearly for many years that we are ruled by images and we don't take the time to understand meaning of these pictures. It has taken me a very long time to really understand what he was saying. In fact, almost 30 years and it proves that we never really know everything about each other!!
However, that day, I did get it. He said that the words come from our heads and the images come from our hearts. So much of our talking is often without the emotions of the heart. If we use fewer words and more images, then the communication is apt to be filled with love and compassion. It was a very good conversation.
