Back to A

Sorry I got out of alphabetical sequence.  I'll try to do better from now on.

A is for Amaryllis.  We have two trumpeting loudly in the sun room and three more on the way.


Many people throw their Amaryllis away after the first blooming, but these have been coming back for three or four years now, every year bigger and better.

A is for Alphabet

Thinking I need a little thematic inspiration for this space, I have added the "A is for..." category.   I will use this category sporadically as a sort of encyclopedia of my life.  The great thing about encyclopedias is that their organization is dictated by the arbitrary nature of alphabetical order.  So, the profound and the insignificant stand cheek by jowl, which is pretty much the way of the world.   Hopefully, you and I will both make important discoveries by such serendipitous juxtapositions.

A is for ascending, acumen, the 'aaaah' of satisfaction.  A is for approval, applause, appreciation.  A is for amusing, ardent, amorous.  A is for arise, awaken, arrive.  There is something positive and up lifting about that little arrow pointing skyward, something that makes 'A' a great letter to start off with.  A is for Art.

Of course there are no unmixed blessings.  A is for ax.  A is for Armageddon.  A is for arrhythmia, ataxia, aphasia.  A is for arrogant, afraid, awful.  A is for asshole.  We'll just have to take it as it comes.
