    She was fascinated with words.

    To her, words were things of beauty, each like a magical powder or potion that could be combined with other words to create powerful spells. -Dean Koontz-

    In a bar in Toledo across from the depot on a

    barstool, she took off her ring... I thought I'd get closer so I walked on over. I sat down and asked her name... When the drinks finally hit her she said: "I'm no quitter, but I finally quit living on dreams... I'm hungry for laughter, and here ever after, I'm after whatever...

    Epeolatry

    I could just as easily have posted this in the "I Like Learning New Words" group. Given its meaning, however, I thought this to be the more appropriate location.It is from the Greek "epos" (word) and "-latry (worship). As can be seen from the etymology, the definition is "the...

    Words can be twisted into any shape.

    Promises can be made to lull the heart and seduce the soul. In the final analysis, words mean nothing. They are labels we give things in an effort to wrap our puny little brains around their underlying natures, when ninety-nine percent of the time the totality of the reality is...

    I never knew this: Technically,

    the first person ever to mesmerise anyone - that is, to leave someone so spellbound at what they have seen or heard - was Dr Franz Anton Mesmer (1734 - 1815), a leading Austrian physician who ruffled a few feathers in the medical establishment by using hypnotism as a way of...

    It's true. We give words too much power.

    By uttering them, we give them life. We give them power to hurt, to ridicule, to discriminate, to degrade, and to kill. But I still love them. Because words comfort, heal, encourage, and make you believe that maybe, everything is possible. I love the feelings that words...

    Dissonance.

    Dissonance is word of the day. I've had to read and write it a lot today and every time I do, I enjoy the way it sounds, which is ironic considering it's meaning. But when you add the word 'cognitive' in front of it, well that's just like a party for my tongue!

    People often say I talk to much

    or use too many words. That's because I'm a word girl. I LOVE WORDS! I think only people who love words can understand this concept. To limit my words is to limit who I am. So many words in my head dying to get out. It's time to start my novel today!!!
