Font and Frock: What’s in a Name?

What are your favourite words?

I love serendipitous, melancholy, and fortuitous.

Adamantine, sliver, and succor.

And, oh, perhaps a hundred others. They inevitably change with the finesse or jolt of a passing mood.

Words are surprising things, the way that they latch hold of our imaginations.

Some visit but a moment; others stay for a lifetime.

At the top of my list?

FROCK.

Always.

Aside from its dictionary definition(s), and the fact that it is fun to say, the word conjures up, for me, a kaleidoscope of vivid images that have less to do with fact, and more to do with feeling.

Frock is bold, artistic, spirited, rebellious, chic, and imaginative. It is, in short, the heart of this endeavor.

What of the front half of the name?

 Font is the foundation upon which everything is built.

It embraces my love of language, of writing, of communication.

Font is a wonderful word in its own right.

Together, they represent everything that I hope to accomplish with this blog.
