Words are interesting to me, maybe because they are everywhere and used every day. I really don’t know why but it is true that I love words. I am realizing that part of my interest in words is understanding their meaning but more importantly I think I like finding new words and new meanings. And what I also realize has started by Thinking Words is that people are talking more and more about words. I am learning there are so many people who have the same interest in words, there really is a community of people who want to talk about words. It’s enlightening and exciting to hear my friends talking about words.
Throughout the days, I am having the the same old conversations that we typically have about work, kids, friends, etc but now we are also talking about our “words”. As we talk about one word, more words are shared, within minutes several words are being thought about.
I met a friend for coffee today, he shared his favorite word with me. Another person on Facebook shared her favorite word. My colleagues, several of them, have shared their favorite words. All these words are intriguing to me and the reasons and stories that go with them are great too. So, here we are a new page on Thinking Words. This will hopefully be a place where others can come, maybe my friends will start the discussion (I know you all have words, you’ve shared them with me!), and share your words and your stories – for our community.
