I love vocabulary! It was one of my favorite things in school!
On a recent MarcoPolo, one of our tribe members was very complimentary and told me that I was showing much sagacity. Um, ok.
Of course, I ran to Mr. Googlie to look it up because I’d never heard that word before. I found that sagacity is the noun form of sagacious. Um ok. Sagacious is an adjective meaning: “having or showing keen mental discernment and good judgment; shrewd.” Similar to wise, clever, intelligent, knowledgable – from the Latin sagax/sagac: wise.
WOW – what a great compliment! I appreciate that!
To be complimented by being clever, intelligent, canny, knowledgable, discerning, astute, sensible, profound, judicious, thoughtful, prudent, insightful, sage, deep, sapient, perspicacious – hey, there’re two more new words! I can do this all day!

Today is a good day to learn something new. What things do you like to learn? How about a new recipe if you enjoy cooking. Are you musical? Challenge yourself with a new piece of music to learn to play or sing – make it more difficult than what you’re used to. Are you a crafter – go to the local store and learn something totally different from that which you’re proficient. Your mind will be stretched, your skill will improve, and you will feel great!
