Adjectives

The particular words that describe a noun. The specific terms we use to insert imagery into our scripts. Beauty, darkness, stout, petite, athletic, weak, affluent, poor, expressive, mute, focused, disorganized, kind, vicious, generous, self absorbed. Do we become what we label ourselves or what others label us to be?

What happens when the adjectives we use to describe ourselves change? Do we also change to meet the difference in perception or is it reversed? What happens when the prom queens lose their glimmer? When the athletes are paralyzed by arthritis? When the optimists lose their hope? When the intellects are diminished by the effects of dementia? When the romantics give up on love? When the peaceful one's become aggressive? When the expressive become mute?
