Old Postcard Wednesday--Exhilaration ...of dance...and of words











For more exhilaration with words dance on over to Thinkmap Visual Thesaurus. {P.S. added after initial posting:  Visual Thesaurus allows some test runs then displays the option to pay for membership. I love the thing and paid a few years ago, putting it on one of my credit cards to automatically renew annually.}

Firstly I love the postcard!

And then wow - I could do with that Visual Thesaurus. It really is just what I need!

Cool postcard, and I love the lay-out of the visual thesaurus! It's almost like poetic diagrams. Thanks.

izzy said...

Very interesting, thanks-

Darlene said...

It appears that someone was having fun with the thesaurus and dictionary.

Owen said...

Well, anyone who was out looking for a thrill today will go away satisfied from here ! And no cheap thrills either... Pretty cool tool you found there... I think I'm going to bookmark it, never know when a thesaurus may come in handy...

**EVERYONE~ Am leaving the house for the better part of the day and will reply individually later tonight. BUT I wanted to add (and will add to the post) that the Visual Thesaurus allows some test runs then displays the option to pay for membership. I love the thing and paid a few years ago, putting it on one of my credit cards to automatically renew annually.******

Oh my, VT sounds to be something that might carry one away. Not necessarily a negative judging from all the fun you had with it.

Lydia said...

Jane~ Glad you enjoyed the postcard. When I saw it I knew I must have it to share.
Visual Thesaurus is great. I use it seriously sometimes, too!

mythopolis~ A poetic diagram: great description. :)

izzy~ My pleasure. :)

Darlene~ You got that right!

Owen~ Thanks much. I began by bookmarking Visual Thesaurus, and ultimately paid to join. I like it. Obviously. :)

Looking to the Stars, AKA Tickle Pink~ You are fun!

naomi~ I loved the postcard but it is different from most I own, in that there was not much to research (other than the fact that there appears to have been a series of these dance postcards, because I bought one more, but I wasn't in the mood to check into that) so the VT helped to have fun with the one word on the card. :)

There can't be enough words for delight :-)

i like how this brings another dimension to written language, makes it expand in space beyond the usual left-to-right line. it's like a dance :)

Wow, cool post card and what a site to share!

I must mention, You create Vast ART from a simple single word!

Love Aunt.

Lydia said...

susan~ Thank you, and your visit delighted me, most definitely!

Riyadh~ Vast Art...the creators of Visual Thesaurus would love that description of their program! Hope you have fun with it in the future. XOXO
