About the site name: 

“I want words” is from my favorite poem, which I found in a collection of translated poems back in 2011. To this day, it still makes me cry when I read it aloud.

Say More, Speak Like Rain 
Excerpt:

“I want
words

like shiny stones in my pocket,
words like thrown arrows
I want words

like the years in a worn down
table. Maybe I am the last
believer now:

I believe in blind man’s
never faltering fumbling over a writing
of flaming points.”

Say More, Speak Like Rain
By Arne Ruste, Translated from the Norwegian by Olav Grinde
