Meander

meanderIt’s late one evening, and my husband is talking about vacation ideas. Well, not so much vacation, but long weekend. At one point he suggests the idea of meandering around western Kansas and Colorado. I like this. Meandering. In and of itself, the word suggests something unscheduled and peaceful. It’s not possible to meander and feel stressed. This isn’t an unfamiliar word. It’s likely you know that to meander is to wander aimlessly (according to Webster.) It also means a turn, or a winding of a stream. Its first known use was in 1612. That’s over 400 years’ worth of aimless wandering.  Meander comes from the Greek, maiandros, from Maiandros (now Menderes), which is a river in Asia Minor. I could do with a little time to meander. And you?
