An amazing word that encompasses so many variables. It can be a person who lives for drama and wears you out or can relate to a dramatic event in our life that suddenly becomes heightened.
What is more delightful than a dramatic sunrise, or sunset or perhaps waves crashing on the shore in a dramatic storm. What of an amazing mountain range that compels your eye to dramatic snow covered peaks.
Dramatic lighting in a photograph (whether it relates to an object, scene, or person) can instantly change your perception of any of the above.
Dramatic art, theater, music, plays, songs, novels, or words; whatever the relationship, dramatics captures our immediate attention thereby invoking an instant response. Dramatics affects our thoughts, emotions, or beliefs impacting us either negatively or positively.

My first thought was simply omg! The word is constantly being used and hits you in the face, slaps at you from a barrage of news reports and is used to cover everything from terrorist attacks to lone gunman to topics such as to vaccinate or not, to contaminated drinking water.
I remember a time when it alluded to “personal” events, such as a family in crisis.
It is as if this word has taken on a life of its own. Whether used nationally or internationally the word covers a plethora of events – everything is suddenly a “crisis”. It is used so constantly to grab headlines and attention that it seems as though it’s use has changed from an alert to become a scare tactic to constantly terrify people.
Personally, I cringe at the sight of the word. What now? Where now? Who now? As I carefully scan the contents of another “crisis” notification.
And here I was, wondering what could I possibly say that hasn’t been said before.
