7 Wonder Words

Inspired by a post on Murtagh’s Meadow, a delightful blog from Ireland, 7 wonder words just jumped out onto the screen as an immediate response. I just love it when inspiration strikes in a flash of spontaneity.

My 7 wonder words:


Other words that spring to mind to go along with Sparkle: spangle, twinkle, glitter, beam, glow, shine, glisten (and splarkies, the word my 2 year old granddaughter coined to describe some stickers I had covered with glitter for her)



with grandmother feb.o4Because there is magic all around and when you feel it working – well that is a wonderful feeling of alignment with the forces of good

Words that spill through my mind when I think of ‘magic’: wonder, spontaneity, surprise, alignment, elements, serendipity, inspiration.

The picture is from the most magical place I have ever lived, where magical people gathered to create wonderfully magical happenings.


is a bright feeling of love, joy and expansion.




fun, happiness, togetherness, harmony, energy, memories of dancing from a child, through teens and twenties to now: alone for joy, with strangers, lovers, family, and friends, at weddings and birthdays and all manner of celebrations

the more malarkey the better!


sometimes you just have to go !



rich and full, exhausting and exhilarating and needs to be honoured more than it is


 Murtagh’s Meadow’s post was prompted by the Daily Post

“The writing prompt was: “Seven Wonders.” It is said that Khalil Gibran (a Lebanese artist, poet, and writer, born in 1883) once said that people will never understand one another unless language is reduced to seven words.”

What would your seven words be?
