J is for … Jabberwocky ...

Just Jo in Violet light...

… such a cool word … it just kind of plays before it exits the mouth … jabberwocky!!! I love J words … there are just so many enjoyable J words … like Joy … short … happy … Joyous even! Jacaranda …I love the feel of that one in my mouth …the J … with you teeth almost clenched … the ck coming from the back of the throat, the softer sound of the an and the d coming from the front, requiring movement forward by the tongue … Jamaica … automatically puts you in a different space … instant association with blue skies blue waters and sandy beaches …

Just Jo catches her daughters feet on a sandy beach made from light ....

Jacaranda, Journey, Juxtaposition, Jupiter, Jovial … all favourites … however, I am trying to stick to posts that relate to me as they are going into that great big compendium I am working on … so … kinda leaves me speechless … or wordless for a moment … I honestly cannot find a word that starts with J that is some how works … maybe Just??? ... yeah ... i think that works ...

Just Jo in blues & greens

Yeah, I think that will do for now, or until I read everyone’s J post where I will find there are several words that would have worked but I couldn’t spit them out when needed … so …. Signing off this post …. Just Jo …

Just Jo ... the lights flashed from violets to white ... daughter got a weird shot of me when that happened.

Just Jo's daughter in indigo and lighter blues. All photos taken at the B.C. House, in the Vancouver Art Gallery. This was one of the very many free spectator exhibits that were open during the Olympics and ParaOlympics. This Exhibit focused on wood, animals and light ... tres cool!

I am playing Alphabe-Thursday with Jenny Matlock … for other Great "G" words; check out the McLinky links on her blog.

"Juxtaposition" is, by far, my favorite J word in your post! It's even cool to look at!

Jacque said...

Good Morning "J"ust "Jo"

juxtaposition and jabberwocky are both excellent words.

I loved all your J words. You did good.

I'm with all the others who love the word 'juxtaposition' - I like to use it every once in a while to sound smart! hahaha

Sarah said...

Wow, what a jumble of j words. Like you, I love the way these words roll off one's mouth. You certainly gave us some good examples. I think juxtaposition and jabberwocky are my favorites. Cool photos!

Brenda said...

Cool post...love the thoughts about "J" words...and the cool pictures. Thanks for your comments about my post...The G to J theory makes sense to me...Peace

Jenny said...

Love all your J words!

And really love the lighting in those cool pictures!

You should blow those up and make a collage of them...it would be cool art!

Thanks for sharing J day with us!

A+

Jabberwocky - I like that word too, somehow it makes me of star wars, you know jabba the hut, even though I don't care much for that character

Just Jo - sounds good, it's sort of like presenting yourself in a very simple form

GardenofDaisies said...

Of all your J words, Jacaranda is my favorite! Have you had an opportunity to see these gorgeous purple flowered trees?

Beautiful words and photos. Love the word Jabberwocky.

You will never ever be "just Jo", you are an extraordinary, immensely talented woman and it's an honour to be considered a friend of yours.

Love your J post! Neat photos of you and your daughter. Jabberwocky is the name of the book store up at my dad's in Eagle River, Wisconsin. :o)

Blessings & Aloha!
