Which Way?

Time to Ponder yet again.  You know the drill... I post a prompt that has multiple meanings and we get see what you write! Add you post to the linky and wait for the magic!!

(If you want to send me words that you would like us all to ponder - please feel free to do so!)

Today's word is CROSS (you can always grab the prompt early by visiting the Pondering Page

Whenever I think of cross, I think of a cross roads and having to make a choice, and then that reminds me of the Scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz who pointed both directions 
I am pretty sure the subtle meaning behind that has to do with choosing either path has a different set of circumstances and outcomes, but if we all believe in destiny and all things happen for a reason, that road really doesn't matter.  (Okay enough philosophy during a pondering post)

There is also Cross which means being mad at someone, not really sure where that came from.

And then all of my friends that find sacred meaning in "The Cross" - you know, the one where Jesus was crucified.

Perhaps cross should just meaning the intersection of two non parallel lines - because after all they will eventually cross!

So.... anyone know what the heck is a Hot Cross Bun?

Happy Pondering!

P.S Happy New year to all my Jewish Friends.  (some of us are caught in the middle :) with no idea which road to take)


  1. I love hot cross buns. They have a cross in the middle. Thanks for another ponder.

  2. I've enjoyed thinking about the meanings of the word 'cross.' Thank you for a good topic.

  3. A little late... but here! you'll see why in my post. which I might add does feature hot cross buns.

  4. It's always fascinating to me how one word can have so many meanings - of course, for me there was a time where that was super confusing! Really glad I mostly got the hang of the English language! :)
