The Imagery of Words : Millenial Jargon to Renaissance Conversation


Nothing is as potent nor can be as salacious as the usage, knowledge, and intention in the homage of words.

I am a Marilyn Monroe enthusiast.  In her mystique and her beauty, I believe she embodies and typifies  a bodily incarnation of the meaning of the word "Allure".  In the poetry of *Maya Angelou, Phenomenal Woman*, there is movement, glamour, beauty, and royalty in the fusion of thoughts expressed in the song of each word, and paragraph.
"Its in the reach of my arms,
The span of my hips,
The stride of my steps,
The curl of my lips,
I'm a woman
Phenomenal woman,
That's me.  (excerpted from Phenomenal Woman, Maya Angelou)
For the baby boomer generation our archaic examination of thought, word, expression is labored with definition, context, content and explanation.  Our research, our library, our encyclopedia of knowledge is studied and exhaustive.  Our references are framed by the limitations of geography and isolated discoveries.

In the explosion of the culture of the now, the experience of real time, the transition from the IBM mainframe to the immediacy of  ghz modules of app technologies, there is a pendulum shift in the art of communication exchange.  Our modus operandi is the rapture of instantaneous. Our life pulse is intravenously connected to  the art of technology. The newest, latest and greatest information technology updates are our programmed reflexes.

Einstein's theories of special relativity and the physics of lightning speed,  pale with the enormity of the technology feats and enhancements that occur with accelerated ingenuity and ferocious imagination over all social media platforms.

With iPhones, and Androids, and iPads, and hand held devices at the disposal of  babies   to almost every adult exposed to telecommunications, the Information Age is feared as the era of less social interaction and more technical exchange.  Language as a distinct and cosmic expression of thought and words, has  morphed into mono syllabic encrypted formats that are customized  as the new social talk form. Conversation has dwindled as the attachment to the hand held communications devices has increased.    Welcome the Millenials!
"Born between 1980-2000. Also known as Generation Y, they came of age in the shadow of 9/11 and amid the rise of new media. Millennials are interacting all day but almost entirely through a screen. Seventy percent of them check their phones every hour and many experience phantom pocket- vibration syndrome." The Me Me Me Generation, by Joel Stein, Time Magazine. " You've seen them sitting next to one another and texting".
Texting is the new conversation.  Millenial jargon as the most abbreviated conversations in Instant Messaging could diminish a complete sentence into two to four letter acronyms.  The expletive WTF;   What the F*ck?, to the courtesy TY ; Thank You,  YW; Your Welcome, and the contrary LOL;   Lots of Love or Laugh out Loud;  depending on the extent of sentiment,  are a sampling of the  new age vocabulary

The ability to share words that solicit, invite, entertain, and educate is commanding unprecedented value for the talented communicators.  In an extraordinary shift, the millennials who have pioneered and envisioned the virtual pageantry of social media technology, have now engineered  the most expansive information sharing portals of interactive virtual exchange and potential global democracy.

The resurgence and renewed appeal of global communications have initiated a climate of Renaissance. The most fertile instruments of collaborations and conversations are refreshed and renewed through words.

Imagery commands the visual, words communicate the message
