A is for…
Rabbit Rabbit. Sorry, that was a necessary pause before we can move on. After all it is the first of the month and custom suggests the first words out of your mouth on the first of the month should be “rabbit, rabbit” thereby insuring a month (or some varying measure) of good luck.
I’m not a particularly disciplined person, and I like challenges on my own terms, which means gentle invitations that I listen to with my heart for guidance about. But I do like those right-fit invitations. Last month I was challenged to blog on an-almost-daily basis and that was fun, particularly as I celebrated May flowers. But it’s a new month and we can invite in some new energies and ways to play.
Today begins Daisy Yellow’s ICAD challenge – an invitation to create something on a 3×5″ index card every day for 61 days. Do go check it out and see what people have created and play along if you want. There are optional prompts if you’d like. But in any case it feels like a fun way to kick start a bit of creative invitation into each day, without a huge commitment of time or effort. An index card. I can do that. And here’s mine for today.
But my personal feels-like-fun-to-me made-up challenge is blog my way through the alphabet this month. Who knows what letter-related inspiration will show up? I’m open to happy surprises and some lucky ones as well. (After all I DID open the month invoking rabbits didn’t I ?!)
So today we begin:
is for abecedarium.
Abecedarium is an alphabetical wordbook used as a primer for teaching reading and spelling. I believe the earliest ones were simply letters, showing the form, but they soon evolved and we’re all familiar with examples from childhood – those A-is-for-apple books.
Here is an ARRAY of links with some abedecariums you might want to APPRECIATE and ADMIRE.

So there you have it. It’s official. A is for Abecedarium in my world. What is A for in your world? What is it you’re adoring or abhorring today? What question would you like to ASK? What ANSWER would you like to give? Do tell, you know I love to hear.
