Comment on this entry and I will give you a letter. Write ten words beginning with that letter in your journal, including an explanation what the word means to you and why, and than pass out letters to those who want to play along.

kassrachel gave me T.

Touch: It's a big part of how I interact with the world - the texture is as important as the taste or the appearance. Maybe more.

Talk: I talk all the time. I talk to myself, I talk to people around me. I ramble, I chatter, I monopolize. If I don't, I sit, lumplike and wait for a break.

Teaching: I trained as a teacher, and despite everything, I see myself as one, whether it's discussing how I make a dish or sitting around a dining room table with women ten or more years older than I am, or in front of a dojo. When those things go well, there is no better feeling.

Telecommunication: I doubt I would have the social life I do have if it weren't for the internet and all the communications it has facilitated. Like Livejournal.

Tolerance: Tolerance is not an unalloyed good - there are things no society should tolerate - but it should be the default condition when dealing with other humans.

Tranquility: Something I never actually get. There's always something to worry about or wonder about, or get excited about. Even if I'm in the middle of a workout or a meditation, tranquility eludes me.

Thunder: It's primal and real - this clash of cold and hot air masses heralded by bright static electricity, and the science makes it better. No wonder there were gods of it. And there's nothing like standing on a porch during a thunderstorm.

Tall: That which I am not, so I need to call folks that to reach things or see things.

Technology: Whether it's a pda or a lever, it's all tech and it's all capable of being used for good or bad, and there are times when going lower tech (chopping with a knife, embroidering with a needle) maybe the way to go, but one should not discount or ignore that sometimes the higher tech works better.

Trees: The reason I can't breathe all that well, despite zyrtec. Darn you, pollen!

    I've been needing new bras for awhile, and I know I've changed shape, so I went to a lingerie shop and got measured. I'm down two band sizes.…
