Funny! I couldn’t help but notice how my brain searched for the real word to make the comparison in definition…then came the chuckle. The mind is quite a thick filter for everything, even humor! Gracias, Lesley.
Thank you, Al, I’m happy you enjoyed them. It is so fun to let little bits like this come through and write them down. I hang out in my house and laugh with the Beloved. So playful.
I have certainly been o’clocked and forlone before! I’m working on becoming a Masterful invisionary. These are so great! One of the most amazing things about English is that it is constantly expanding. I can’t remember how many words Shakespeare invented, but many that we commonly use today. Masters of Light and Sound know the limitations of English when it comes to naming or describing spiritual concepts, so keep up the great work, Lesley. This language needs to grow!
What a beautiful take on this you have, Rudy. Yes, watching language evolve can be very entertaining. I am often charmed by the way our Beloved unites words to come up with new meanings. The two in this are only a small sample. Thank you for joining in here.
Oh, Lesley. How clever and IN-spired! I just love these. Thank you for sharing and de-light-ing me today. ~@~
You are so welcome, Elsa. Thank you!
Wonderful blog Lesley. I always look forward to them
You always inspire great “blogtemplations!” They always seem to “clearify” my understanding of the journey. Big love
Thanks for the chuckles!! I am definitely an Optimystic! Now I know what I am?!!
Here’s my very own word for the year: Re-Cog-ignition–to re-light the flame of awareness!! (made it up all on my own…)
Thank you all for your kind responses. Cynthia, that is a great word. I so enjoy how at first when one encounters these new words, the mind wants to brush by them, but if you take a little more time, you see the complexity. I see all the parts of your word and how they come together into that perfect definition.
A delightful example of making the mind your friend. When it can be amused and treated, it becomes a lovely support, rather than a hindrance. Your word games are a perfect illustration of this transformation.
