Word Wednesday

Standard

This week’s word is FIXITY.

Fixity means permanent or unchanging. It’s a tough one to use in a sentence, isn’t it? It dates from the 1670s and perhaps should stay there. It’s derived from the Latin of fixitas.

I think I’ll stick to the synonym of fixity and use stability.

Doors

I’ve long been a fan of doors. Wherever I go, I find doors that intrigue me. Red doors on churches signified sanctuary in medieval times and I have lots of photos of red doors. Old doors with peeling paint are inspiring and beautiful to me. I love to see a door with character. Here are a few from my recent travels. Enjoy!

Word Wednesday

I thought I might try a new thing here so I can get this blog more active so I’m going to try to do a word definition every week. Here’s the first one which is one that should be important to every blogger,right?

DEMOGRAPHIC: A demographic is the characteristics of a certain population such as age, income, education, and interests.

We all hope as bloggers that we are reaching the group we want to reach, aren’t we? Otherwise, aren’t we spinning our wheels and merely amusing ourselves with a hobby?

Book Recommendation

418XFnCZWrL__BO2,204,203,200_PIsitb-sticker-arrow-click,TopRight,35,-76_AA300_SH20_OU01_I’m reading a book about and by a former undercover ATF agent called Assassin Hunter. It’s an amazing story of bravery and I’m in awe of the man who wrote it. I met him this past weekend and he’s an intriguing and interesting man. Reading this book about his experiences in the undercover world is making me admire him even more. The experiences he describes are pretty harrowing. This real life story reads like a novel but it gives me chills as I realize how easily it could have turned out tragically for this man.

To meet him, the first impression you would have is that he’s mild-mannered and polite but man! under that exterior must beat a heart of steel. He’s gutsy as hell. My admiration for this man and all he did is growing more as I continue to read. I’m not even finished with it and I highly recommend this one. Run and grab your copy now! Here’s a link to make it easy.
