I never thought I would finish. But I did. Or will once this piece is put to bed. Fun with a capital F. I want to elaborate but will leave the remainder for my reflections post.
I had an idea what zeitgeist meant. I thought of the Roaring 20s: flappers, bootleggers and overall debauchery. I incorrectly assumed zeitgeist meant to have a zest for life.
See what you get with you ASS u ME?
As I was researching, I read where someone commented that zeitgeist was one of the most misused words by people trying to look smarter than they really were. And I had to laugh at the connection y’all. Truly I did. Do I resemble that remark? Why yes, yes I do.
Per Merriam Webster:
zeitgeist is a noun, often capitalized
zeit·geist \ ˈtsīt-ˌgīst , ˈzīt- \
Definition of zeitgeist: the general intellectual, moral, and cultural climate of an era.
That means not only did the Roaring 20s have its’ own zeitgeist, so did the 70s Flower Power. That means zeitgeist is happening right this very moment. Fascinating!
And that’s all she wrote folks. Too tired to continue on yet grateful for the experience all the same. As always, more to come.
