"jabber...."

Jabberwocky
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought --
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And, as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! And through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And, has thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!'
He chortled in his joy.

Welcome Zochitl,

It was a pleasant surprise to see you join and participate. I don't think anyone has posted in years.

My favorite word for today is entelechy (self actualization if talking about the human dimension).

I also like eloquence, graciousness, integrity, artistry.

juxtapose - because it surprised me.  I went for years thinking "just oppose" in my head because I thought the word meant "across from"  when actually it's side-by-side.  Who knew?

weltschmerz - another word I'd heard all my life but didn't know the definition until The Big Bang Theory mentioned it.  It's like sadness or disgust from comparing the actual to the ideal.

fluctuate..that is all
