Pesky, Pesky Words…

That moment when you’re reading a book put out by a Fancy Publishing Company, only to discover they used the word palate instead of palette:

Picard gets it...

Picard gets it…

Twice. They did this twice. Thanks for pulling me out of the narrative, Fancy Publishing Company!

Font and Frock: What’s in a Name?

Here’s a bit of info about my soon-to-officially-launch new blog!

Font and Frock

What are your favourite words?

I love serendipitous, melancholy, and fortuitous.

Adamantine, sliver, and succor.

And, oh, perhaps a hundred others. They inevitably change with the finesse or jolt of a passing mood.

Words are surprising things, the way that they latch hold of our imaginations.

Some visit but a moment; others stay for a lifetime.

At the top of my list?

FROCK.

Always.

Aside from its dictionary definition(s), and the fact that it is fun to say, the word conjures up, for me, a kaleidoscope of vivid images that have less to do with fact, and more to do with feeling.

Frock is bold, artistic, spirited, rebellious, chic, and imaginative. It is, in short, the heart of this endeavor.

What of the front half of the name?

 Font is the foundation upon which everything is built.

It embraces my love of language, of writing, of communication.
