So I started this blog with the title “Eat Paper, Drunk Ink.” It’s a quote from Shakespeare’s Love’s Labour’s Lost, where a character uses this phrase to describe literacy. It was also a placeholder, because I don’t really like it and it’s obscure.
The new title is also obscure, but you know right away (I hope, given the content of the blog) what it means. It’s from an English poem:
Whence did the wond’rous mystic art arise
Of painting speech, and speaking to the eyes?
That we, by tracing magic lines, are taught
How both to colour and embody thought?
So there we have it. I think that perfectly demonstrates the power of the written word, so we’re going to go with that.
