Emotions with no words
The other day I was watching a ballet when I realized that although there were no words I clearly knew what the dancers were portraying with their body. The ballet had all the emotions it made me laugh, angry, and weep.
After the show it left me thinking of the non verbal communication in everyday life. So I conducted a sort of experiment. I studied people when I walked around, on the train and where ever I went. It was amazing how much I found that I could tell a lot about people without them saying a word. Now I’m not saying that I didn’t notice before when someone was happy, angry or upset before but the ballet made me observe more.
I also took a look at the TV show Lie to Me. The shows whole concept is about reading people. They use the human face and body language. Also peoples tone of voice. Between that and the ballet it opened a fascination in me.
With my experiment and the show they made me think even more. Come up with a story concept to use the non verbal to get emotion across with no words.
Take a shot at observing someone today and see what you can find out. It may led you to unexpected things.

I sometimes find myself not paying attention to the pastor at church because I’m engrossed in watching the emotions played out between a deaf man and the person who translates the sermon to him with sign language. Watching him smile at the jokes being told when he can’t ‘hear’ them with his ears and only through the signing of the interpretor is really neat.

I was thinking the same thing (about emotions with no words) when I watched the opening ceremony for the Olympics. The announcers kept butting in and trying to explain what was going on, but I just wanted to watch it. And when the Alberta Ballet came on… I was just mesmerized.
I try to always be observant of peoples facial expressions and mannerisms.
I also enjoy the show Lie To ME.
