How does the word “love” look? How can you show the word “passion?” What does “Monday” feel like?

I love writing. I love words but I know that communication will never be just words. People have always warned me about body language. I can speak in more than one way. Communication can be anything! Words, photographs, music, expressions, clothing, dance, and more. It doesn’t matter how you communicate, I believe all communication is beautiful.

Today, I read a post on Mashable about a new campaign by Puma urging consumers to communicate with the brand and other consumers via dance.

They call it “Dance Dictionary,” with the slogan: “Don’t say it, move it.” As I watched the videos I was mesmerized.

The dancing fit the words. The motions felt bolder. The people spoke louder. I love the campaign.

I haven’t been able to stop thinking about this campaign all day. I’ve shared it with many of my friends and I keep thinking about the ways that we communicate.

I’m never going to stop writing words but I know there’s other ways to speak my mind.

Just express yourself!
