Dear Kid,

It is a great day to celebrate words.

The present moment is most precipitous for honoring the various parts of speech.

Whoo-hoo for the lingo.

Words are singularly the most powerful force available to humanity. We can choose to use this force constructively with words of encouragement, or destructively using words of despair. Words have energy and power with the ability to help, to heal, to hinder, to hurt, to harm, to humiliate and to humble. Yehuda Berg

What a remarkable time for terminology!

Just a sec while we pause at this juncture of jolly jargon.

Now befalls us an excellent occasion for praising vocabulary.

Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. Rudyard Kipling ‘Tis a momentous minute for lauding the lexicon.

From dawn ‘til dusk, what better than to rejoice in the contents of the dictionary.

Today, January 18th, is Thesaurus Day. Go ahead, write your own version. And have fun. Enjoy. Make merry. Revel. Party on!

Love, Mom
