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 😂🤪

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

Stepping Back

It’s like I’m outside at a circus, looking through a dirty glass window, watching all the kids having fun inside…

Climbing tall ladders to reach high wires. Pulling a lion’s tail. Stepping on the oversized shoes of clowns.

In time, I turned back to pass between bended fence posts and begin my journey home – 10,000 steps.

Rustic Cabin

Enjoy my artistic rendition of an old, rustic cabin missing windows and roofing, exposed to the elements of nature and ravages of time. The view reminds me of peering through a dirt-covered screen, trying to discern more accurately the details of a distant structure. If you’d like to add a print to the walls of your home or office, then please visit my gallery at Fine Art America to review a variety of print types.
