#AtoZChallenge Heart Strings by @ellytreehugger


H, the eighth (8th) letter of the alphabet can represent so many heartfelt words, not necessarily of the ‘his’ and ‘hers’ kind like hero or heroine!  😉  Words like hearth, humorous, and humane are some that come to mind.

I’d like to draw your attention to “hear” and “art” in the word “heart.”

Most people are aware of – may not practice it though – the art of listening:  a listening ear to what is said – heard – both verbally and non-, in between and under the words in terms of tone and feeling as a reader (or listener).  This may include pictures used symbolically (as I do occasionally).

As a reader, see what the writer is attempting to convey.  What is the primary message or theme?  Sometimes there is more than one!

As a writer, do you write from the heart, i.e., with (all your) heart as well as an open ear to the promptings of Spirit through intuition?

Hats off to both blog writers and readers – commenters too! – for all roles feed happiness to each other like a rhythmic cycle!

  1. I never broke up heart into Hear and Art.. but its a good analysis. I completely agree with you Elly.. Reading and writing from the heart.. otherwise, it the lack of warmth does show up on the blog.

  2. That’s a great post! I so agree with you – if we don’t put our hearts to what we do – reading, writing or commenting; we will not be able to get the crux ever. Thanks for reminding this again Elly!

  3. I liked the perspective you shared, Elly! Yes, both the readers and the writers have to hear-art and write from the heart, respectively! 🙂

  4. Elly, I loved how you broke down the word heart into hear and art. Such a refreshing perspective. Tree hugging is very therapeutic. Nice to get to know a little more about you.
