smile God's nod sounds good to me and I'm rather sceptical about motto's. Verbal stickers.

I stumbled across this private project today on the net
Thought it interesting enough to mention here....

From Flickr.com

AWAD "Numinous"

Just having a little fun for 2012. In school we had a few lessons in typography were we'd create font illustrations that captured the meaning of the word to be illustrated. I always found those fun.

No idea how long I'll play with this, and I'm not giving myself any hard rules, but seeing if I can do weekday updates using the A Word A Day (AWAD wordsmith.org/awad/index.html )

First word of the year is "numinous". adjective: Supernatural, mysterious, or awe-inspiring.(wordsmith.org/words/numinous.html) Great word.

That's neat, candy. Thanks for giving us this link.
Mind you, I'm not so sure that we think of the stars as "mysterious" any more.

But hats off to the typopphile who produced it.
I'm immortal until proven otherwise
