I’m in love with books. And the words that make up the stories, facts and inspiration within.
Big words, small words, each has a meaning.
Each has the power to evoke a memory or feeling.
Increasing my vocabulary has always been a game to me. I challenge myself each day to find at least one new word in the articles, novels, inspirational, motivational, or fact based books and yes, blogs I consume.
I love crossword puzzles. They help keep my brain sharp, exercise memory skills and teach me new WORDS!
Today’s new word is: Sumismatics, the study of change.
And I love to write. With words. Words that hopefully work some magic for the reader.
I want them to see vivid, colorful images, smell wonderful smells that bring warm memories to mind, even bring a tear to the eye, or a smile to the lips.
My curiosity is insatiable. At times I am unable to shut my brain down to sleep. That’s one of the times when meditation comes to my aid. I focus on my breathe until my mind is quiet. I practice compassion for myself instead of judgment and soon I am asleep.
Usually with a cat wrapped around my head or tucked behind my knees and all is right with my world.
