To see the Haley’s comets from Vancouver was FANTASTIC! Still remember the days I saw it. Too bad that was the time I do not own a single media to capture the image. Really? You didn’t even get one shot!!!!!? … Continue reading

Words

What is prayer?

You take words,
everyday words,
and all of a sudden they become holy.

Why?

Because there is something
that separates one word from
another and then you try to fill
the vacuum.

With what?
With whom?
With what memory?
With what aspiration?

So when words bring you closer
to the prisoner in his cell,
to the patient who is dying on his bed alone,
to the starving child,

then it’s a prayer.

words by Elie Wiesel

As we think, so we become

The thought manifests as the word;The word manifests as the deed;The deed develops into habit;And habit hardens into character.So watch the thought and its wayswith care,And let it spring from loveBorn out of concern for all beings.As the shadow follows the body,As we think, so we become.—Guatama Buddha, DhammapadaPhoto Credit: H.H.

The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
 The deed develops into habit;
 And habit hardens into character.  
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.
As the shadow follows the body,
As we think, so we become.

—Guatama Buddha, Dhammapada

Fun with Words ~ Word Play Masters Invitational

Reading your post, there are so many humorous writers out there.  This is a challenge for you.  Start putting on your thinking cap and join the fun. 
The Washington Post’s Mensa invitational once again asked readers to take any word from the dictionary, alter it by adding, subtracting, or changing one letter, and supply a new definition.   Here are the 2009 winners: 
1.     Cashtration (n.): The act of buying a house, which renders the subject financially impotent for an indefinite period of time. 
2.     Ignoranus : A person who’s both stupid and an asshole. 
3.     Intaxication : Euphoria at getting a tax refund, which lasts until you realize it was your money to start with. 
4.     Reintarnation : Coming back to life as a hillbilly. 
5.     Bozone (n.): The substance surrounding stupid people that stops bright ideas from penetrating. The bozone layer, unfortunately, shows little sign of breaking down in the near future. 
6.     Foreploy : Any misrepresentation about yourself for the purpose of getting laid. 
7.     Giraffiti : Vandalism spray-painted very, very high.
 8.    Sarchasm : The gulf between the author of sarcastic wit and the person who doesn’t get it. 
9.     Inoculatte : To take coffee intravenously when you are running late. 
10.   Osteopornosis : A degenerate disease. (This one got extra credit.) 
11.    Karmageddon : It’s like, when everybody is sending off.

Feel free to pass this around according to WPMI.  “It’s not ours.  We don’t own it.  We haven’t copyrighted it.  We don’t want to.   We just want to have some fun with words.” 
Thank you, Marti of Just Outside the Box Cartoon.
