WORD PLAY ~ AROUSE

AROUSE

Main Entry: arouse
Pronunciation: &-'rauz
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): aroused; arousĀ·ing
Etymology: a- (as in arise) + rouse
transitive verb

Wednesday WORD PLAY is upon us. Think I have one today that ought to "stir" up some emotion, or at least something! So to get to the point, let's get started. Today's word is arouse!

Usage: Many things arouse me but nothing is more arousing than life itself. Believe me and I'll tell you another lie. If you only knew how hard I am trying to keep this post at a G-rating. LMAO!

Again, the "play" portion...any comment you leave must use the word arouse in it. Your response can be about anything ~ the post, me (watch it!), something about you, something happening in your life. Knock yourself out thinking of something serious, humorous, or off-beat to comment about. Just have fun with it! Oh, and here are some pictures to arouse, I mean inspire you as you ponder your answer for this post.

Your posts are very thought-provoking.

In today's case, the idea that life itself is arousing, to me, is a lie. It seems to me life is an endless series of hardship and pain. The arousing parts come in when an individual is lucky enough to encounter other people to share life with, be they acquaintances, friends, or lovers.

An individual must choose to focus on those parts of life that are arousing, and ignore or dismiss those parts of life that are deflating and troublesome. The hard part is making that choice, and then getting through the rough spots in anticipation of the good times.

Not sure if this made sense, but you made me think, that's for sure! Thanks!

Without mental stimulation and visual perception, physical arousal is just not as powerful. There must be a melding of the senses to make the arousal process compete and exciting.

My post today is meant to not only help deal with my self-esteem issues, but to arouse my readers -- with interest in my blog, of course.
