Like its predecessors, “heavy,” “cool,” “the bong,” “awesome” has become the word to express our surprise, wonder and appreciation for what occurs.
While I personally reserve the use of “awesome” for events like the big bang, the speed of light, the power of love and bar b q spare ribs, I’m willing to acknowledge how anything that triggers the “awesome” reflex is probably a good thing.
On the other hand, awesome can refer to events which, though perhaps mind-boggling, are not such good things: Climate de-stabilzation, the hydrogen bomb, and at the risk of sounding partisan (God forbid) that which lives in our psyche that could actually want Donald Trump to be our president.
At the very least, “awesome” can interrupt the familiar ho-hum and trigger a new level of amazement for that which is beyond what we might have expected.
Rochelle (THE LADY IN THE PICTURE) has wanted to highlight “awesome” as our featured phrase of the week. So, in honor of her 77th birthday, we will immerse ourselves in the “awesome-ness” of life. Look about you and within you find insights into the nature and wonder of existence and how it applies….to you
Hopefully, you’re response is, ”Awesome!
