The powerful bond between humans and horses goes back through the
ages. Still, you may be surprised to see to what degree we continue
to equate our most intimate relationship with our equine companions.
Horsing Around unveils the connection between marriage
and horses. It offers tantalizing food-for-thought for everyone
who enjoys horseplay and wordplay – but especially for those
who will soon be stepping up to the altar to alter their lives forever.
If you are one who intends to be wedlocked – and are feeling
even the slightest trepidation about entering the marriage ring
– you may be surprised to find your hesitation vindicated
by Writing English – and Jumping to Some New Conclusions.
In this reflection on words related to relationships, which comprises
the postscript to this engaging book of photography and philosophy,
you’ll behold some old words in a new light that may illuminate
your reservations along with others that offer some useful solutions.
Writing English reveals what happens when words with no
apparent foundation for a lasting relationship get attached to each
like sonic soul mates. Through numerous examples of this Homonym
FUNomenon, author Laurel Airica demonstrates how some anagrams and
puns function like linguistic Freudian slips that offer an insider’s
look at our outlook on life while others are the Secret PathWords
that point toward lasting happiness.
Given that humans are HEARD animals – literally
wrangled by sound bites to take certain
actions – it’s intriguing to discover in Horsing
Around just what’s in a word beyond its surface deaf-initions.
Given that so many sounds are saddled with assorted unheard meanings,
you’ll come away from this book with a new understanding of
why people cry on the day you say Eye Dew.
