Dreadful language


 Words and images mean different things, depending on the context—historic, cultural, personal—in which they are read or heard or seen. 

Today’s prompt: Think of something that offended you. Not someone else.  You.  A book, a joke, a cuss word, a photo, an advertisement, a symbol of any kind.  Imagine it in a different context.  Break it down into its elements.  Keep going until each element becomes inoffensive to you.  Now go back to the original offense.  Figure out how to fix it or render it harmless.

Write, or paint, or photograph, or compose, or weave . . . . Create.
