Another letter, another inspiration lull (hmm, lull. Note L word for tomorrow), so I decided to go with a hint from the universe and get a random word.

Didn’t exactly work at first.

I got a list of words starting with K I wasn’t sure were words, including Kwakiutl, which, I learned, were a Canadian native American group found in British Colombia. Now we’ve both learned something.

Finally, after several clicks of “generate,” the word “keeperless” (my spellcheck disputes its wordiness) appeared. Keeperless. Curious.

But not fully inspiring. I turned to my trusty thesaurus, with its torn cover and yellowed, curled pages, found K, and closed my eyes.


K started on the J page. Aiming a little lower, I pointed. And hit.


Curiouser. Keeper and keeperless. There is a poetry to it, a yin and yang, keeper and keeperless, A balance of words, perhaps only out of chance, perhaps out of something more and mysterious.

Keeper and keeperless.
