Convey Meaning within Symbols

The Word, Quixotic

Quixotic is out of this world.

Its meaning is “exceedingly idealistic, unrealistic, and impractical” (from Oxford dictionary). It is unique. It is exotic. It is all in one word that it lingers questions and underlying contradictions.

This word came from the Spanish novel called ‘Don Quixote’. Although I didn’t read the book, one day I will if… But I did look up and stood beside the monument in Madrid once.  A story about a man with the obsessions of chivalry and falls in demise like any so-called hero would.

The Word, To

“To” what?

It is “to”.

You may find that this is a common and ‘not so special’ word, but, you are overlooking its meaning. There is much more to it with “to”.

This is one of the most particular word I ever ponder on. I called it a “word traveler”.

Hang the Phrases with “Hang” and “Hanging”

It is now over 20 blogs, I held myself together. I don’t want to say “hanging in”. And figuratively speaking of which, I think is better described.

It is funny that after listening to a song, I am actually writing this. Music has always been therapeutic and the lyrics had reminded me of some past experiences or unknown wonders that is carried within. Then this particular one I was listening to is “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5. R.I.P to Michael Jackson. As I hear the lyrics goes, “Don’t you know I sit around, with my head hanging down…” the inspire just came in. I am literally sitting and just thought of what I felt; it plays the words in my head as my body throbs. And then later with some real life events that happened and talked with a good friend of mine, this is what I realized. Continue reading

The Word, Ephemeral

One word is just too short. Everything with life is, as well.

The word, “ephemeral” describes it in one word. “Lasting for a very short time.”, the meaning leaves a daunting wonder. It reminds how the little things matters.

Like the flowers, they are ephemeral beings on Earth. These still and small green to colorful bits of life have only a brief moment or I can say one season.

Spring, the time to bloom is where its’ prime is unleashed. It is an ephemeral time.

Envision Your Vision for the Visual

What do you see? How does this look?

We have questions about how and what something looks or look like. Some cannot see it or imagine it nor ever could compare.

We see what we see. Sight is powerful and much more believable than our other senses, it could be used as an advantage. However it is a disadvantage depending on certain situations. Seeing can do justice and injustice.

You see what I am writing. As you see, this is the point. My vision will envision you some shredded light of what I see.

Envision

VERB [with object] Imagine as a future possibility; visualize. Continue reading

The Word, Moniker

Moniker is a name.

There is definition, informally it is some sort of title or nickname/alias.

This is rather unusual word. I only find it be probably Irish/Shelta according to Dictionary. A word from some sort of Celtic language.

Utterances and nonsense, it would seem. Yet like all commonly heard words, moniker and others rarely heard exist. We should know they do.

I may not know, but I know everyone has a name with a meaning. We all are monikers with a symbol embedded within us that is not written on paper. Although they were said or written differently, names are given by our parents or guardians, or sometimes what we choose by.

A moniker has a significant purpose where we are born in and to. Like I, Igniza am a moniker with chosen name specifically. A person is made to share this knowledge to know by a moniker. It is not an empty space nor from a nameless being.

A existing term which I reveal, has been uncovered from my writing. Many of these unknown monikers will as well.
