These new words were announced at the June 23rd meeting:  exacerbate, stripped, magnolia, eclectic, knowledge


Linda Gordon, "Knowledge is Power"

The fruit of the knowledge of Good and Evil --

On one hand, the power to exacerbate pain in a world stripped of conscience.

On the other, the power of an eclectic good, where the lion lies down with the lamb

and the magnolia shares space with the thistle.

Nancy Forbis-Stokes, "Marion's New Pursuit"

The disease exacerbation stripped Marion's nerves of needed insulation.  Disabled from 

athletic hobbies she turned to her eclectic knowledge of flora and photography.  She

captured her magnolia tree in bloom and developed expertise in lighting indoor flowers.  Eventually, her hobby became a new and fulfilling profession.  

Coy Roper, "George and the Magnolias"

     "Bring a magnolia blossom," Mrs. Pratt said, "and you'll get an 'A' in Science."  George

had no knowledge of flowers.  To exacerbate the problem no one grew flowers in his neighborhood.  He stripped flowers from trees all over town and presented an eclectic

collection, saying, "Here's a magnolia---I think."
