First post- the promise to you.

The LITERATE Show is being readied for launch, the web designers are working hard to make the new site beautiful and functional, and the marketing team is pressing me, rightfully so, to submit content so they can do their jobs.

In the midst of that, I am getting to know WordPress. I’ll be building this blog to directly communicate to you, the reader, on a variety of subjects stemming from a continuing discovery of the world.

Not all the blog subjects from The LITERATE Show will appeal to you. I ask that you give them a chance. Give them their time. Consider this: Sometimes we don’t like something due to more in how it was once presented to us, than to what it’s actually all about.

You may not like something today, due to how it was presented to you yesterday. But it still may be worthwhile! Don’t let the “you” of yesterday hold anyone back today.

You’re not going to get into Emily Dickinson if a book is handed to you the moment you’re skydiving out of an airplane. You might even bypass her writing if you’re at home tending to your life, even though you have a thick volume of her works in your bookcase.

But one day Ms. Dickinson (or any given previously-undiscovered subject) will reach you. You’ll be sitting by a lake, and through an article or narration you’ll come across a certain set of words.  And POW.

The brain is wider than the sky. For put them side by side – The one the other will contain – with ease – and you beside.

Hang on. Bookmark me. I promise it will be interesting.

About Ara Hagopian's The LITERATE Show

For over thirty years, I have enjoyed drawing beautiful shapes and writing complementary stories. The imagery tends to focus on our place in the world—whomever or whatever we may be. I am influenced by Twentieth Century history—I read vintage magazines, books and letters. Inspiration comes from visualizing human achievement and personal interaction—derived from people, places and things which may be obscure, but never insignificant. My pen-and-ink THE MAGNIFICENT RECOVERY was selected by the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston for their 2008 summer art auction.

    Great idea, Ara.
    Looks like you are taking your art work, and photography to a new level.
    Congratulations, and hope it is a big success for you.

    Okay Ara, I”m on board. Better late than never to get here. I may as well start at the beginning. It is so true regarding how something is presented to others. So much of human history may have been less violent, and differences among cultures more easily understood and respected.

Tell Ara what you think!
