It’s been a while since my last post. During this little hiatus, the world as I once knew it has become darker. I’m not going to point to the elephant in the room, since it’s clear as daylight what I am referring to. My intent is to share my astonishment at how quickly things can change. Granted, there have been obvious incremental events and changes in thought patterns that have led us to where we are today. Yet…it is nonetheless staggering. I remain hopeful this new landscape will eventually lead to positive things for all.
One thing that we can still have fun with is words! Take a look at this short video from a fellow Smith alumna who appears to be a lexicographer extraordinaire (with fab hair), and who shares some of her love/hate relationships with a few words: Lexicographer Kory Stamper '96 on Words.
