Meditation 1.24.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle
In Joan Didion said "The ability to think for one's self depends upon one's mastery of the language" and it is a quote I take very much to heart.
I am always on the lookout for new and cool words and the last couple of days has provided two really great words.
The first is shibboleth - a longstanding belief or custom which distinguished a particular group of people that rather out of date and unimportant. I can think of several organizations off the top of my head that has several shibboleths.
The other is crumpsy - short-tempered and irritable. I actually used this one in a sentence today. Specifically, it makes me crumpsy. Try saying it out loud. If you are crumpsy, after you say it, you will laugh and no longer be so.
