Fun with Chronic Pain

Just found a fun creative site, Wordle . It allows you to use a body of text, like your entire blog, select the most commonly reoccuring words, size them in terms of how often they are used and then create a colorful graphic from your text. Attached is a screen shot of the one I made from my blog. There is something very reflective to see this visualization of your written work. And let’s you see where your focus has been.

Check it out. Let me know what you think.

About Mary Byrne Eigel

Before writing children’s books, Mary spent many years teaching in classrooms and creating art in her studio. She was born with bi-lateral hip dysplasia, a painful condition that causes normal activities, like walking, to be challenging. As a child, when Mary had to trek long distances, she often wished she had a wheelchair. For her, a wheelchair offered pain-free opportunities, not limitations. Mary grew up in Chicago, which is the lakefront inspiration for the town of Sail. She lives in Missouri with her husband and two dogs, Beaux and Trey.
