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.
