I’ve been following Lisa Congdon’s work very closely lately. She’s on a mission to complete 365 days of hand lettering on her blog Today is Going to be Awesome. I loved her submission today and felt the need to share. I’ve never been a huge poetry buff, but I’ve always loved the work of e.e. cummings. It’s like one of those things where your brain can read a sentence eevn if all teh ltteres aer mxied up if teh frsit and lsat ltteer be in the rghit pclae. Tihs is bcuseae the huamn mnid deos not raed ervey lteter by istlef, but the wrod as a wlohe. I think e.e. cummings poetry works in a similar fashion. Sometime the individual sentences don’t make much sense, and you’re not even sure what you’re reading, but somehow in the end, the poem as a whole makes sense to you and leaves you with a profound feeling of understanding.
