Glyphic 2


I have imagined these glyphs as the written language of beings whose scribes are chosen for their ability to mirror-write, that is, they write with both hands, their form of what is our left-hand/right-hand variation would be that most of them work from the centre out, but that some of them go from outside left, and centre, and work across… or, the other way round. Their written language is extremely complex, with meaning derived from a combination of colour and line weight, as well as shape, and, of course, perfect symmetry.

Still playing ‘Put Your Needle Down’ almost continuously… sooo beautiful. ‘Iuka’ must be one of the saddest/most beautiful songs I’ve heard for years.

    It’s an amazing idea: write with both hands. I rarely listen to particular music, I don’t think I know this song. Well, too much to do now after being sick for so long.

    • I knew a woman who could actually do that, write with both hands, at the same time… she could write the same sentence, left to right, at the same time, with each hand. I often mention the music I’m listening to, as I love music, but my tastes are extremely eclectic, as well as generally quite non-mainstream, so I don’t expect the few people who actually read my posts to be interested… but I keep trying, on the one in a million chance I will discover someone else who shares my tastes in art and music (:
