Lent Day 17

I like words. Obviously. I'm also lazy, so when I come across a word I don't know, I often continue on my way, still not knowing. However, I have a little notebook in which I try to write those words down to look up later, when my computer is handy (now that I have the OED right in there! Hooray!). Thanks to my middle school literature teacher, who made us memorize poems, I know that writing things longhand does help me learn them, so I copy out the definition in my little book. The words in this picture were chosen from that notebook, one from each of the first five pages. The resulting picture, I think, has some rich possibilities of meaning that someone else can use his or her own words to describe, if the desire is there.
