There are many great words that start with S in Spanish. After I typed an assortment of words in the “New Post” page, I pondered the many photo options for those words.
Most people don’t particularly care for images of snakes; the word for a poisonous snake is serpiente. (Otherwise it’s culebra – correct me, Spanish speakers, if I’m wrong!)
I usually sign my emails and notes with the word siempre, which means always.
Sandia – watermelon would make a fun pictorial, as would sapo – toad. (A frog is called a rana.)
Other helpful words are Sabor-Taste, Sed-Thirsty, Salud-Health, Salud-Cheers, and Salud-Bless You! Last year I was walking down a quiet sidewalk in Cruzita, and two men were walking on the other side of the street. One sneezed, and I automatically stated, “Salud!” and kept walking. They looked over at me, were shocked to see an ‘outsider,’ and they chuckled – as did I!

Today’s Daily Prompt asks us to write a post influenced by a favorite song. Sheryl Crow’s “All I Wanna Do” triggers images of fun times with good friends. This song also fits into News of the Time’s Tunes Tuesday, although my teen years predate this song! I am blessed to witness pure joy from people I meet as I travel through Latin America. Had I stayed “home,” I would have missed meeting amazing people and some incredible experiences!
Enjoy the photos and Sheryl Crow’s classic song!
