Nuances by George Straight

Sitting on the Fence by C. Minnie Gates

OK, one more and I'll be done for ahwile.

I like writing this kind of thing because it challenges me to listen not to words but to their meanings. Their multiple meanings. Their shades of meaning. Being the son of immigrants (as is John) whose humor seems to have always revolved around the timing and double meanings of words (as is John's), wandering through the English language to create titles like this is almost as easy putting my foot on the gas when the light turns green. Thanks John for getting this "juan" started.

The one I'm ending with is one that comes with a pen name and public internet name I choose to use regularly. For anyone reading this, you see it in my blogger signature 'freeman'. I use it to subscribe to newsletters and magazines. It truly does carry meaning for me because the juxtaposition (I love that word: juxta is a latin word for 'near') and contradiction of the two terms is something I see alot in my daily world.

Here goes:

Impossible Choices by Will Freeman

or

Determined to Just Let Life Be by Will Freeman

or

Slave To Independent Thought by Will Freeman


Remember the cartoon 'Calvin and Hobbs'? Who do you think the author named the characters after? Ahh, the meaning of the cartoon characters changes once you know the men they represent. N joi.
