I struggle at times to find the right word. In normal conversation it's usually not an issue but when you write you want the right word. I was perusing the writers section of Books a Million and found the J.I. Rodale "Synonym Finder" which contains over 1 million synonyms. I couldn't resist. I've already used it several times when I had a dilemma, predicament, plight or I was simply in a pickle.
When I want to say "old", I now have hundreds of options like aging, grizzled, senile, decrepit, senescent or over the hill.
If in the course of reading this blog you find that I'm leaning too heavily on the "Finder" please feel free to bring it to my attention, awareness, make me cognizant of the fact...........
