Good stories and important messages. This is the essence of majority of our communication. It is the content it is the purpose and it is a manifestation that we are here and have been here for a long time. We accept the world we are presented with through the stories we hear and read. We use these stories as the stepping stones to further develop our thoughts and the world of ideas, where only imagination sets limits.

We all know per. instinct and from birth that we must express ourselves to meet our needs and that these human needs are covered in cooperation with our fellow human beings around us.

Here the language is an instrument used to express or hide a given purpose. Not just an instrument but several that can be played independently or together.

There is the talk of body language, spoken language, written language, musical language, picture language, sign language and the language of the heart. It can be perceived with both eyes, ears, minds, and feelings. It is spoken of countless dialects, and we never express ourselves freely without a self-chosen intention.

What language do we speak, is it a closed or open language, how do we express it and why do we do it? Is language a force that ties us together as human beings and makes cooperation and thus progresses for all our different societies possible? Do we write to maintain the language, do we maintain the language when we write it down or change it because we play with it while developing our world of experience and awareness?

Are we expanding our shared knowledge, experiences, resonance and understanding of our world with the language and as the universe expands? What criteria do we use to choose our speeches and texts? Is it about facts, content or entertainment?
Words we Speak and Write Is it about acquiring knowledge, promotion of the good and the limitation of the bad, or is it about cultivating and copying frustrations and anger and dismay?

What is a beneficial language and what language would we like to be remembered for, preserve to our children and our posterity? What are the concepts and conversations we give echoes and emphasize in our texts? Highlight by writing it down, binding and preserving, as if it was gold that is later unpacked for a given occasion and gaining an extremely important and interesting function.

What are the stories and narratives we reproduce and attach to each other and ourselves and how do we choose, or rather, what can we select from? Should we set requirements and criteria for the use of the language and the content of the text or can it be completely alike? The more the better and everything is indifferent? Who and what should be able to define and determine these criteria and from what frameworks and ideals are this possible at all? For us, it’s not so much about finding the right answers to all these questions, but much more about asking them to reflect on them and take some active choices when choosing what our precious attention is going to be used on.

Our frames in 1pen are around learning and teaching, in quality, ethics, and morals, in co-operation and development in an ever-changing and dynamic world. Nevertheless, it is a world with some fundamental principles that we cannot change. One of these is that there will always be a need for new stories and more narratives we can use to describe this world as best as possible to each other. By new voices that exaggerate their needs and ideas, we can better see each others vision and provide space for creating a more coherent and spacious vision that applies to all of us.
