My Little Mayberry: To the Maxim!

Words beginning with ‘E’ have been catching my attention this week.  Exuvia:  the castoff coverings of animals.  Bleah, you say.  But think of casting off winter wear and buying fresh Spring clothing.  Estivate:  to pass the summer in a state of dormancy or torpor.  This is me 100%.  Honestly not looking forward to the heat.  If I could estivate in a nice cool cave stocked with iced champagne the entire time, well that’d be okay.  Unfortunately, monthly bills don’t accept estivation as a reason not to forward checks.
         An eloquent (“e” word) way of understanding a person is to know the maxims they live by.  Review of the etymology (“e” word) of maxim:  “An expression of general truth or principle”.   Some of my favorites:

  • Use it up, wear it out, make do, do without.
  • If at first you don’t succeed, trying thinking.
  • If you don’t ask, you don’t get.
  • To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
  • In the end, only kindness matters.
  • And my favorite for Williams Pioneer Deadlines…
