An imago is an idealized concept of a loved one…or a winged insect
My dog chases them all the time. Isn’t it strange that I can write a whole novel and yet there are some words that I have never used in a sentence? In fact, some words are so foreign to my way of speaking that they would stick out like the proverbial sore thumb if I ever used them. I yawn, but never oscitate. So this week’s campaign challenge has left me feeling less than poetic. I could write about a miasma of steam rising up to obscure my reflection in the mirror, but I haven’t had time today to take a shower. Could there be a lacuna in my vocabulary? I don’t even know if I’m using that word correctly. I’m reminded of a scene in the movie “Clueless” when a guy tells the late great Britney Murphy “Be seeing you” and she answers “I hope not sporadically,” having just learned the word. The fact that I’m quoting “Clueless” should give you an idea of my mindset. The challenge is to write a 200-word blog post using several assigned words. One of them is synchronicity. I bet you can guess what the others are. Vote here for #101 (That’s me).
