of the Week
word or phrase to add to your army.
Did you ever lie on your back in the grass when it's warm out and suddenly feel a gentle breeze waft over you like a soft kiss. You can now proclaim, my friend, that you have been touched by a zephyr (zeh-fur).
Zephyrs are wonderful things.They are welcome when it's hot, they blow wildflower seeds and scatter color throughout fields, and they lift your kite in the spring. I think there should be a national "Take a Zephyr to Lunch" day!
Also, a little trivia for you: zephyr used to be the name for gingham fabric, the kind with the tiny squares in different shades of the same color.
And . . . it was also the name of a make of automobile.
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."
