The Alphabet Game

I recently visited the web site of a friend, where I enjoyed her writings about different letters of the alphabet, and was reminded of a game I used to play many years ago – The Alphabet Game. It’s an easy and fun game to play with two or more people…

How To Play

The first person starts the game by saying a word that begins with the letter “A” – such as, Always. The next person restates the word beginning with the letter “A” & adds another word, this time beginning with the letter “B” – such as, Always, Beautiful. Any word can be selected, including names. So, the next person might say – Always, Beautiful, Carla. The words chosen can be completely random, or players may seek to form sentences, as in the following example:

Always Beautiful Carla Delights Every Friend, Granting Herself Inner Joy. Kind, Loving Mother Nurturing Offspring Perpetuates Quality. Reading, She Thoroughly Understands Voluminous Wordsmanship. Xenial Youthful Zeal.

Note: as per my experience, having played this game, one may unexpectedly recall the list of words used, several days later 😂ðŸĪŠ

P.S.: if you visit Carla’s web site, please say “Hello” from Phil. Thanks!

Journey From Earth

It’s Latin


“Non est ad astra mollis e terris via”

There is no easy way from the earth to the stars.

Seize The Day

Carpe diem was a phrase used by the Roman poet Horace, published in 23 BC, to express the notion that one should enjoy life while one can. I created this design using Bryce software, depicting a morning sunrise illuminating typography in an imaginary landscape. If you can imagine you might enjoy this design of various merchandise, then visit my shop at Pixels and ArtFlakes. Hope to see you today!

An Aspiring Writer

Do You Speak Portuguese? I don’t, but I have a friend from Portugal who is an aspiring writer with a Google Translate button in the sidebar – she is Carla Milho.

I encourage you to visit her site and follow her work! She’s an honest, truthful person who writes from the heart with sincerity and passion, following her dreams through engaging, life-experience discussions of ambition and goal-setting, an appeal to self-improvement, cautious tales of deleterious external influences, the value of family and friendships & other points of interest.
