of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
If someone is considered sagacious (suh-gay-shuss), they are thought to be wise. The expression 'wise old owl' could also be said, 'sagacious old owl.'
Many consider that becoming sagacious happens with age; that older means wiser, but I have known some mighty sagacious youngsters in my time. I have learned a lot from children who have an innate (natural) sagacity (suh-gah-si-tee) about them. It is marvelous to behold (see or witness).
Sagacious is something we should all try to be, but if we don't have it yet, should look for a friend who is. It is a better alternative than 'flying by the seat of our pants*.'

I am Becky Lyn Rickman. I am a writer because I love words almost as much as I love the people in my life. I want to fill the world with magnificent words and then jump in and splash around in them. I live with Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy, my cats, but the only words they really love are "meat" and "gravy."
