  • Mood:

I do, I do, I do believe...

There was this quotation at the bottom of my A.Word.A.Day* email:

Isn't it enough to see that a garden is beautiful without having to believe that there are fairies at the bottom of it too? -Douglas Adams, writer, dramatist, and musician (1952-2001)  

To which I say, But I want to believe! Some may consider me superstitious, others, ignorant, others still, weak; but I like having a little belief in my life.

*The word of the day was "mawkish," and I found the etymological explanation fascinating:  

From Middle English mawke (maggot). Are maggots sentimental? We don't know, but the secondary sense of the word mawkish derives from the disgust we feel at the sight of the insect. By extension the word began to refer to something sickeningly sentimental.
