Day 114 - I

Thesaurus. it's like a dinosaur. a word dinosaur! like, Thesaurus Rex.

okay, perhaps not.

but I do love my Thesaurus. and

I grew up with my word-mama. a walking dictionary, thesaurus, encyclopedia. 

she gave me a love of words.

one year I asked for a Thesaurus for my birthday. I still have it. and I still refer to it frequently. there are just those time when I can't think of the word I want, but I can think of a thousand other words that are almost the word.

so I flip through my book until I find the word that is just on the tip of my tongue.

words are magic. words are emotion. words are beautiful.
