okra

root word of gumbo
Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

okra

root word of gumbo

Cool trans-lingual culinary factoid:
The Bantu word for okra is ngombo and a likely root for gumbo. Okra is integral to gumbo unless you use file' powder.
The Choctaw word for file' (ground sassafras) is kombo and also a likely root for gumbo.

Intercontinental synchronicity is cool.
If it weren't for the therapeutic properties of the occasional off-camber decreasing radius downhill right-hander I'd almost certainly go completely sane.

I just found out about

bowdlerize

To remove or alter those parts of a text considered offensive, vulgar, or otherwise unseemly.

From Thomas Bowdler, who in 1818 published a censored version of Shakespeare, expurgating "those words and expressions... which cannot with propriety be read aloud in a family."
Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live. - Anna Quindlen
