Meditation 1.24.19 - A Pen and Ink Tangle

A pen and ink doodle meditation in pink and blue and a blurb about language and two really great words
Dear Henry,

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The first is shibboleth - a longstanding belief or custom which distinguished a particular group of people that rather out of date and unimportant.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.

xoxo a.d.
