Devolution, Revolution, Absolution, Resolution, Institution, Dissolution, and last but not least, Evolution.
Sometimes I will be doing mindless things and suddenly a word will pop into my cranium. Uh, Maybe it is more that a word is trying pop out and escape. Understandable, knowing that it is jungle in there.
The first word will be uttered creating a waterfall effect of words that sound similar or rhyme. With each word, my mind scrambles to connect them by other means than phonetics, roots, prefixes or suffixes. I try to find a mutual theme or direction that will tie them together to form some kind of point or clever arrangement of ideas and thought.
Once I have played this word game long enough to find the boredom behind it, I move on to the next piece of glitter that catches my eye. I very seldom take the time to write them down. But for some reason, the words at the top have popped up more than once in recent days. Hmm.
Since I only paid the slightest bit of attention I could muster back in the days of chalk boards and tight lipped teachers wearing winged glasses, I have never been much of a scholar of words. I like them immensely. But I have never gone gaga over them to the point of becoming lost in them for longer than most anything else I find interesting.
No, that is a lie. I am a closet Dictionary addict. There. I said it. I actually pick up the dictionary from time to time, not to find a word, but to find a new one or just bask in the glow of all those words we use to describe our condition, our lusts, our peeves, our reason for carrying on. Words are so cool. Without them, I am sure we would have killed each other off long before this.
Words can seduce. Words can produce. Words are the juice that keeps humans moving from where they were to what they will become. Without a written language, we would still be masturbating in trees. Uh, well maybe some still do. But that is more in spite of words, not because of them.
So what conclusion or connection have I managed to button up regarding the words, Devolution, Revolution, Absolution, Resolution, Institution, Dissolution, and last but not least, Evolution? They all seem to be ideas or concepts we humans cannot avoid. We either desire them or wish to tear them down. Regardless, they are all important in the matrix of exchanges we Homo sapiens have with each other.
As ever, now moving onto the next bright light...................
