Thesaurus Day

Today is Thesaurus Day, recognizing Peter Roget (1779-1869) who developed the valuable reference that keeps many of us from becoming redundant and repeating ourselves and saying the same thing over and over.

My favorite upright and fellow blogger, Garry, found a Visual Thesaurus that presents synonyms in a mindmap format. I have often heard a picture is worth a thousand words, so a picture organizing a collection of words might be priceless.

Thank you Mr. Roget for adding spice to our literary lives.
