Word of the Day
Saturday, March 31, 2007
Tapestry (noun) – A heavy fabric with a scene or design woven into it; a heavy textile fabric having a design woven across the warp used for wall hangings, furniture coverings, etc. – a famous tapestry is the Bayeux Tapestry, which depicts the obnoxious William the Conqueror showing up and defeating the Anglo-Saxons in 1066 – Harold, I just can’t forgive ya, Darlin’ (from Middle English tapstery)

Word in a Sentence: (Today's sentence is straight out of Chapter Two of Choices Meant for Gods, which I think I'm allowed to do in a public forum now that the book is published.) Godric’s voice boomed as it left his chest, but the stones and their blankets of tapestries absorbed the sound, muffling it with the doors standing guard against the travelers.

(Well, now doesn't that read strangely out of context? Sorry. But you know what a tapestry is.)
Your turn! Do you have any good artistic and lovely sentences in you today?

“Some days, I just want the dragon to win.”
