"W's" are interesting characters. They look like 2 "V's" merged. Does that mean that they are twice as emphatic as "V's"? The Latin alphabet had no "W's." So I guess in a sense they are hybrids. However, classical Latin, not church Latin, pronounced all the "V's" as "W's" - as in Weni, Widi, Wicti, which is actually spelled, Veni, Vidi, Victi - I came, I saw and I might have conquered had it not been for the confusion!! "W" may be one of the most mis-understood letters in the alphabet!!

My "W" words for focusing yesterday were wisdom, wish and wonderful.  In the business department things had been a little slow so I was wishing that sales would pick up. You know what they say, "Be careful what you wish for, you may get it."  Well I was literally "run off my feet, yesterday."  Thank you everyone for a very busy day - it was wonderful!!

Now "wisdom" I believe comes with age and maturity. I know that some children are just born "wise" and some adults never mature. Then again there is that old saying - "Fools rush in where wisemen fear to tread." I think that if we were all very wise - nothing new would be created, nothing ventured, nothing gained and no one would be there to "Just do it!!"

A little wisdom might help us along the way; but too much might prevent us from setting out at all. The picture is my youngest, possibly contemplating the next step. We need more people who are not afraid to leap!!

Today is an "X" day.  X may not begin many words but it is a great communicator. I think that I will focus on "Xenophobia" - fear of the unknown, "X" and all its related communication, as in that which is forbidden, discovered, agreed to, excluded..... and "X-ray" as in seeing beneath the surface. Should be a fun day.

Have a wish filled day!!
