WORDS FOR WEDNESDAY





Words for Wednesday” is provided by a number of people, on Wednesday of every week of each month.  The word fun has become a movable feast. 

Essentially the aim is to encourage us to write.  Stir the grey matter into action.


Each week we are given a choice of prompts, which can be words, phrases, music or an image.   What we do with those prompts is up to us:  a short story, prose, a song, a poem, or treating them with ignore...  We can use some, or all of the prompts.
 
This month...the month of June, is my turn to nudge you all into action.  You don't have to play if you do not wish to do so.

Some of us put our creation in comments' section on the post, and others post on their own blog.   Some do both.
 
Those of us who participate would really like it if as many people as possible joined into this fun meme, which includes cheering on the other participants.
 
If you are posting on your own blog - let me know so that I, and all others who partake in the fun and games can come along and applaud.

As advised above, this month’s prompts will be supplied by me, Lee. 

This week’s “Words for Wednesday” are the six words listed below:
 
 
 
Stellar
 
Resourceful

Frivolous

Revelation

Catastrophe

Perspective

OR

Potential

Embodiment

Euphoria

Jeopardise

Unite

Groundswell


The GROUNDSWELL of support for the STELLAR, brave young people put a whole new, different PERSPECTIVE on the future of the town.  

The RESOURCEFUL group of youngsters was the EMBODIMENT hope – of optimism - making the area’s POTENTIAL limitless.  

Henceforth, the town and its surrounds would flourish in leaps and bounds
.   
The problems the whole region had been experiencing in the past would be solved, of that there was no doubt.   

Once thought by the elders in the community to be FRIVOLOUS, empty-headed youths, incapable of being anything else other than mischief-making, idle, layabouts, how the young folk rose as one when the major CATASTROPHE threatened to JEOPARDISE the lives of everyone in its path was a REVELATION.  

Positivity had finally been restored to the rural community.

The selfless actions of the youngsters motivated the townsfolk to UNITE as one, to venture forth, following the example they’d been set.

A feeling of EUPHORIA enveloped the area.  

Like a phoenix rising from the ashes, the area, and the community were reborn.

  2. You are what???? Opening not one but three businesses? On no capital? With no experience? You are dumber than the dumbest dumb blonde that ever hatched.

    Rachel took a deep breath. And another.

    So her brother considered her frivolous, and the embodiment of ditziness. So what. It wasn't a revelation that they looked at life from very different perspectives. She refused to let his attitude jeopardise her happiness.

    A job with status and a stellar salary to go with it were his priorities. He viewed her losing the latest in a long string of jobs as a catastrophe.

    He was wrong. She knew she was resourceful, and viewed each change in her circumstances for its potential. Yesterday she was an underpaid and overworked child minder. Today she was going to fulfil her artistic potential, uniting head and heart and establish that nursery/photographic studio/tea shop.

    Bubbles of euphoria continued to rise. The groundswell of her life was based on joy. He could stick to the narrow path. She refused. Flatly.

  4. I'm wondering just what the problems are that have drawn the young ones together in a united group to fix things?
    A very uplifting use of your words today, showing that the oldies are often proved wrong about the younger set, just because they do things differently.

  7. Crikey Lee .... you sure have a way with words. I'm not much good with words or I'd give it a go. I excel at BARK and whine. I do know that word catastrophe though. Mum reckons I go from one catastrophe to another .... every day!! Now there's a frivolous revelation for you, aye?? Crikey ..... did you see what happened there. I used a few of THOSE words. Ok ..... I'll stop now before I embarrass myself.

  11. Good use of words.

    History has shown that the young have always risen to the task at hand. They start out as idealist which is what is needed but in the end give into the status quo. It is always repeated.

    1. Hey there, Arleen. History does have the tendency of repeating itself. I wish it would only repeat the good stuff, though! :)

  12. The line-up for the inaugural Tamborine Mountain pop festival was brilliant. Drug smoking hippies and Hell's Angels from all over Australia had descended on the normally peaceful Queensland township.

    On Friday night, the headline act was POTENTIAL, a heavy rock combo from Sydney. The crowd went wild when they played their best known track, "EUPHORIA" with its memorable refrain, "I like drugs that get me high/ I'm gonna love ya till I die!" Pure poetry!

    Saturday kicked off with EMBODIMENT from Noosa Heads in Queensland. Their lead singer, Jenny JEOPARDISE wowed the crowd with her rendition of the alternative state song "That's in Queensland".

    As the late sun beamed down, another great set was performed by UNITE, all the way from New Zealand. As you probably know, UNITE are a heavy metal band who love to turn up the volume. They were probably heard back home in Auckland!

    The headline act on Saturday night was hometown band GROUNDSWELL, led by their famously frantic front-woman, Lee George who was dressed in a sequined ball gown with her hair dyed pink. As the set began she yelled "Is everybody alright?" before launching into the band's current hit single, "Kitchen Connection" about a love affair between a sous chef and a waitress.

    Needless to say, the audience went wild.
