Wow! The A to Z Challenge has zipped by! One has to be a bit zealous to come up with 26 posts in 26 days. You have to “get in the zone” of daily writing.
But there is that 27th letter. You know, et, the ampersand? Yup. That used to be the final letter of the English alphabet. Totally deserving of its own post, which I will likely write soon for my other blog, “What Rhymes with Stanza?”
I suppose one could always continue the challenge with double letters. Aa for aardvark; BB gun; C. C. Rider… Okay, I’d be stumped after that one.
I started an A to Z challenge of my own a while back, with stained glass. I call it my “Concept Series,” the goal being to create a stained glass series of 26 panels, each representing a concept, or an abstract idea. Something you can’t point to and say, “There it is.”
Things such as artistry, beauty, love… You can say, “This is an example of…” but someone else may have a totally different notion or interpretation of your example, or of what type of example might better represent a given concept. Any word that can start the phrase, “_____ is in the eye (heart/mind/soul) of the beholder,” is probably fair game for the concept series.
And if you look at one of the panels with no directed context, your interpretation might be completely different than mine. And that’s great!
I won’t be going in alphabetical order. I’m not that organized. My muse isn’t that linear in inspiration. The photo below is one of the panels in the series. What might it represent for you? I’ll tell you what it means to me in the “Comments” section for this post.
Z is for Zone.
