Time to confess: tell us about a time when you used a word whose meaning you didn’t actually know (or were very wrong about, in retrospect)
Confession time again, today! I confessed just yesterday I had never heard of Blood Moon till my son told me what it meant.
Well today’s prompt again takes me back to my kids… some of the words and expressions they use so naturally, would often go right over my head unless I summoned the courage to ask them or surreptitiously look it up in the dictionary or The Miz Know-It-all Google Aunty ! For starters, for a fairly long time, to me, LOL meant a word, not an acronym and was not very sure of the usage either. Same for ROFL, OMG, TGIF. Now I’m wiser. LOL !!
This group of sculptures is known as Arjuna’s Penance, said to depict the Pandava prince’s penance to obtain Lord Shiva’s weapon. The sculpture dates back to the 7th or 8th century and is a testimony to the talent of the sculptors of that time. It has over 100 figures of man and beast, life and nature, brought to life by artisans of that day. Truly a Marvel of mankind ‘s art and skill, it is one of the Heritage sites protected by UNESCO. They call it the descent of the Ganges
The lady in the foreground is my Mother , who also is to me, a living symbol of endurance.
