Day 21 – Park

five-minute-friday-4It’s five-minute friday – go!

Today’s prompt is park – first thought was park as in play or park as in park your car?

Which led to thoughts about the English language.  Did you know as of January 2014 there were an estimated 1,025,109.8 words in the English language?  Not sure what the .8 word is but we’ll think about that another day.

Then – with ALL those words why do we have the same word for multiple meanings – Homonyms?  Park and Park?  Or my least favorite – words that SOUND the same but are different – Homophones…to, too, two, here, hear, there, they’re their, witch, which…and on and on it goes.

So three points today – you gotta PARK yourself some days – just stop and rest.  Lay in the grass and look up at the clouds.  Then, your homework this weekend, head to a PARK and have some fun – me?  I personally like a park with hiking trails.  And finally, I LOVE google – it feeds my curiosity – I learned some things today about the word “park” and am fascinated at all the word variations in the english language – feed your curiosity.  Don’t get so caught up in what already is or what you already know – get out there and learn something new.

The highest form of research is imagination – yoga teacher this morning
