Jesus Tapdancing Christ America. What have you done?

I fell asleep on the couch watching election coverage. Thought I was having a bad dream. Woke up in a nightmare and now I can’t get back to sleep. Make America great again indeed. How so? To what era shall we turn back the clock Donny? To when my vote would not have counted? To when I was 3/5 of a person? To a short short 49 years ago when my marriage would not have been legal? Those who know me know I don’t really do feelings, and I have no tolerance for fear or weakness. Now here at...

Somnambulant – The Walking Drowsy

Excogitate – Let me think on that. .

Today’s word comes to you from the Latin “excogitat” literally meaning  ‘found by process of thought,’. a Delicious combination of the prefix ex for ‘out of’ and the verb cogitare – to think. This is for all my knowledge-vores who get a taste of a topic, an art, a craft, a language, any field of study and just dive right in face first to learn EVERYTHING about it! Also for my grounded individuals who understand the importance of researching a topic fully before giving an opinion. Should anyone ever press you for information before you feel ready, whip out...
