Letters represent sounds, groups of letters, which create words, represent thoughts, and strings of words form concepts. Turning those concepts into beautiful and relevant images is called magic. Barbara DeLong certainly does magic with words. With both poetry and dialogue, she stirs deeper thoughts that awaken higher levels of consciousness, conscience, spirituality, and hope. Barbara evades the limits of gravity, by lifting our reality above the physical and emotional and speaking to us on higher planes.
Cosmic, universal, and infinity are weighty words often thrown about carelessly. To Barbara, these heavy concepts are mere foundations and stepping stones leading up to an even greater reality. A dimension where the atmosphere is love, there are 50 ways to say give, but none for the concept of greed, and possibility has only one limitation, range of imagination. Having the pleasure of knowing her personally qualifies me to express a simple truth. She does not just express incredible things, she thinks them and lives them as well. To know Barbara, is to know love, generosity, patience, tolerance, imagination, optimism, and wonder. To not know Barbara, is to live in an a capella world.
