Word Salad

June 30, 2013

For the final day of the blogging contest I started 30 days ago, the challenge was to make a word cloud. I’d seen these on other websites or used as avatars, and wondered how on earth people created them…..now, thanks to a site called WordItOut, I know how it’s done.

And so for the reader’s enjoyment, here is my first attempt at the art: a ‘word salad’ as it were, made up of terms associated with my affliction. The patterns—just like the course of the illness itself—are irregular and almost random, with words of different sizes and colors. IOW…..a perfect metaphor for my life as a person with bipolar disorder.

    Love the colors. Yes, I agree…this is how my mind looks most days I believe.
