Moved by the rhythm

Think About It

January 13, 1999|By Leah Komaiko

"To me all words are like music. They have a sound and a rhythm and a beat. They move and breathe like the people and places they describe. They are not just flat sticks on a page. If it weren't for the rhythm in the words, I don't think I would have learned how to read. Or, as someone put it better, "It don't mean a thing if it ain't got that swing.'"
