Word Play- Me and My Blog as Rendered by Tagxedo


I had some fun playing with Tagxedo last night. It's an online word cloud generator that will render clouds based on a website, a topic, or a Twitter name (though I haven't gotten the Twitter feed to work yet).

Above is Tagxedo's take on Live Wonderstruck and below is what happened when I entered S.M. Hutchins as a search topic.


Curious, really. On the right side of the S.M. Hutchins cloud, I see "TX," "WhitePages," and "Gallagher" in fairly large font which implies they are common results, but not related to me. What do "DVD" and "Wilson" (on the left) have to do with anything, and what does "Fbo" mean?

I like that my favorite words are the biggest: magical, humorous, mystery, everyday, life, writer. Sneaking through the middle is the word "seeking." Love that.

Anyway, I apologize now for the stuff you will not get done today because you are playing with Tagxedo.

Happy Friday!


  1. Crap. I'm pretty sure you just sucked my whole day away... (quickly opens page to check out new website...)

Confirm Your Humanity

I type my email address into the box and click. Another screen pops up: “Confirm your humanity.” I check a box and it is done. Humanity confirmed. But I wonder what am I doing in my life today to confirm my humanity?

What It’s Really Like to Have Anxiety

“People who need help sometimes look a lot like people who don’t need help.” -Glennon Doyle
I can’t say with any certainty that I am viewed as having it all together. I have, however, been complimented for my ability to remain calm or to calm others. In my days as a project manager, it was a strength often highlighted in my performance reviews. One supervisor actually used to mistake my calm attitude for a lack of understanding the urgency of the issue, until he learned I very much understand the urgency, but can’t address it if I get frantic.

During my application process to become a Hospice volunteer, the coordinator told me after speaking to my three references that she had never seen a single word used so consistently to describe someone. What word is that, I asked. “Calm. Every single person commented on how calm you are.”

Calm. That is a marvelous state.

Imagine how it must feel to be known for being calm and to hold a diagnosis of anxiety. It sometimes feels that my entire sel…
