The past few bloggers chats, my friends wanted to discuss memorizing bible verses. It caused me to remember when I was studying Greek many years ago. This might give you a glimpse into how my mind works.
To teach us the Greek verbs endings, the professor came in with a guitar and taught us a song to help us remember the verbs endings. Fast forward 17 years to when I was studying Spanish and practicing the Ser Verb, one of the Be Verbs in Spanish. I was in the shower when it hit me to use the Greek songs and instantly I had the Spanish conjugation for Ser- soy, eres, es, somos, sois, son.
Perhaps the instance that might really give you a glimpse into how my mind works was when I was working on Noun Cases. In Greek, there are Nominative, Genitive, Vocative, Accusative and Dative cases. Dative case is used with- to and for.
One evening I was watching Star Trek Next Generation. In the episode, Commander Data, an android, was researching dating and relationships. He was going to each main character to ask for advice. When he approached Captain Picard and said, “Captain I am.” Picard cut him off saying, “Yes, I know and if I have any I will tell you.”
In that moment, all of the Greek Noun Cases clicked in for me as I related Dative Case to Commander Data.
Sometimes when I am in a store, I get bored and stand there entertaining myself with possible scenarios. One time I was pondering the deep philosophical question of if Jedis from Star Wars played soccer with Elves from Lord of the Rings, who would win.
God creates each of use differently. He seems to have given me a creative mind. Through creation, God displays his artistry through diversity.
I hope the glimpse into how my mind works does not scare you off 🙂
Thank you for reading. God Bless.
