MORE THAN WORDS
by Michael Webb
Finally. Athena went away for the weekend. It’s not that
I was getting tired of her — I just needed a few hours alone to
create a special gift for her.
I’m sure most of you have seen the magnetic poetry kits at
gift shops. They contain a hundred or so individual words with
magnetic backing that can be arranged to create refrigerator poetry.
I think they are a great idea, however, I wanted to make a set that
was more personalized.
First I went to the office supply store and purchased a pack of
25 magnetic backs for business cards. They cost about $5.00. I
measured the magnetic pieces and created the appropriate margins in
my word processing program.
Then I began typing. I put in over two hundred poetry words like
“stars, flicker, moonlight, touch, gentle,” etc. Then I added
personalized words such as “Athena, Michael, travel, best, friend,
sweetheart, cutest, girl” and other nicknames and words that
would have special meaning to the two of us. Of course I included
liberal amounts of “a, an, the, I, and, but” and suffixes and prefixes
like “s, ed, pre, sub, extra, ly, ing” and so on.
I printed out all the words and then placed them on top of
20 of the magnets. Then, I used clear shelving paper and placed it
on top of the paper for a protective layer. I used a razor utility
and scissors to cut the words apart.
Then I rummaged up a little box and put all the pieces inside.
I created a label on the computer that said “More Than Words”
and put it on the box. It was ready to greet Athena when she came
back from her trip.
By now, some of you are saying “that sure does sound like a
lot of work to me. I don’t have any spare time to do anything like
that.” The whole project probably took me about 3 or 4 hours. It is
true that you probably don’t have the time in one sitting to create
this. However, if you took 10 to 15 minutes of your lunch break every
day, you could have it done in a couple of weeks.
If it still seems overwhelming for you, you can always buy the
romance edition of the Magnetic Poetry at gift stores. It won’t be
personal, but it still is a nice gift.
