 Pondering PromptsTraipsing Through Thursday. . . Pondering prompts many types of thoughts.  Sometimes it pulls from the past. It can also foretell the future perhaps with a fantastical fumble-like futility. And, of course, it can focus on what is happening "right now". The mind seems to have its...
 When It Comes To Variety. . .    You may have heard the saying “Variety is the spice of life”. The word “variety” came to mind as definitions can differ depending on context among a list of reasons likely too lengthy to include here. Words in quotes can make us wonder even longer.

 Click Chemistry CoincidencesAnd A Challenge Entry Is The Result. . .    At any moment there are challenges that are a part of daily life. And evidence of that is abundantly clear in ActiveRainLand.   The annual Nobel Prize honors for achievement in various fields were announced recently.    Stic...
 More Midweek MusingsWhen A DumbphoneBecomes Adorkable. . .    Beyond idiomatically, the word seems to be "on the street".  And it appears there are some words and terms joining the race where references to this, that and thereabouts exist.   Recently, I saw an online announcement that Merriam-We...

  Yet Another Way Of Expressing Thankfulness. . . I have been thinking.  In particular how one thought can lead to a different one.  Okay, I know what some of you may be thinking - just another day for that pondering, wondering and wandering guy.  Fast forward from my random recollections to Satu...
 Bearly Noticeable. . .  As we know, stuff of all kinds happens. And it seems to occur regularly. Spelling errors and mixed-up use of words are just two of the many examples. Such blunders may even be intentional.  Perhaps it's meant to illustrate a point or maybe for some other reason.   And the...
  Methods of AttachmentIt is generally accepted that property falls into categories classified as real or personal.  In real estate, methods of attachment may enter the discussion. Of course, in everyday life, attachment can be both real and quite personal. And simultaneously too.  In this regard...
 Beyond The Bark. . .You may have heard that a bark is worse than a bite.  Interpretations of anything written or said can lead to all sorts of thinking.  On and off-topic.   Today, I am not wondering about barking dogs but the stories from bark on trees.  Perhaps the sounds and the symbolism the...
