"Pictures of words. I don’t really think of them as visualizing the content of the word, necessarily, or the meaning of the word. It was just 'gurgles, sucks, echoes'- pretty arbitrary in a way- but a little bit about holding on to that phrase in my life. Every time I use that phrase it’s like eating, like savoring something."
