Pick a Word-November 2021

Paula of Lost in translation has given us 5 words to choose from her Pick a word-November 2021 photo challenge.


It means something is embellished with decorative features or patterns, such that it is made to look more attractive.

Everybody wants to add that extra beauty to their natural appearance.

Everybody wishes to appear pleasing, dashing, fashionable, stylish, modern etc.

Nothing wrong with it.

But at what cost?

Who decides the standards?

If you are not attractive by one of the ways described above…you are sure to be looked down on in society.

In other words, Simply you failed to understand the definition of ‘beauty’ as laid by the fashion industry.

Making things much easier for you- I say you are leading your wonderful life…courtesy of the opinion of others about you!!

And you are willing to lead a miserable life!

It’s fine! Because you own your life and your decision is final!

“Life is hard enough, you don’t have to embellish the drama!” Marianne Williamson

My friend, beauty does not need ornaments.


Leafage refers to the leaves collectively.

“A man’s rootage is more important than his leafage” Woodrow Wilson


Panorama is a wide view surrounding the observer.

“..for thousands of years, human history has been a magnificently futile conflict, a wonderfully staged panorama of triumphs and tragedies based on the resolute taboo against admitting that black goes with white” Alan Watts

Alan Watts felt that opposite forces can co-exist even nourish each other.


Ponderous means having great weight.

“To move the wheels of justice is a ponderous business”  Mary Astor

My friend, do you think you are overweight and people make fun of you?

Time to ponder.

“And I said to my body softly, ‘I want to be your friend.’ It took a long breath and replied, ‘I have been waiting my whole life for this” Nayyirah Waheed



“I think everybody should study ants. They have an amazing four part philosophy.

Never give up, 

Look ahead,

stay positive and 

do all you can” Jim Rohn

Thank you for visiting my site.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
