Writer on a Horse
And a Dog

The world looks better from the back of a horse and the roads of life are easier with a good dog beside you.

Words Words Words

Have you ever listened to someone talk and wish you knew what they were saying... I have!  It's like listening on a cell phone with a bad connection, you catch a little but mostly you just have to guess what the heck they are saying.  That can be very dangerous.  So I've decided to learn a new word every day.  I'm writing them down and will share on my blog once a week.

First, the word from my last blog.  FICKLE  someone asked me why I used that work to describe Dream.  Good question!  It sounded good, it's a different word and people would pick up on it, or it paints my feelings about dream.  All those statements would be answered with YES.  It does sound good, it is different and it is appropriate.

lacking firmness or steadiness (as in purpose or devotion)

implies an incapacity for steadiness and an inherent tendency to change 

suggests unreliability because of perverse changeability and incapacity for steadfastness 

suggests motivation by sudden whim or fancy and stresses unpredictability 
implies a rapid changeability in mood 

implies an incapacity for remaining in a fixed position or steady course

I can be pretty fickle, actually... I've sometimes described myself as like my zodiac sign Pisces--- two fish swimming in opposite directions... doesn't have to be a bad thing but sometimes it is!

I didn't know fickle could be used in such a positive light. Thanks for sharing.
