black (adj.)

Old English blæc “absolutely dark, absorbing all light, the color of soot or coal,” from Proto-Germanic *blakaz “burned” (source also of Old Norse blakkr “dark,” Old High German blah “black,” Swedish bläck “ink,” Dutch blaken “to burn”), from PIE *bhleg- “to burn, gleam, shine, flash” (source also of Greek phlegein “to burn, scorch,” Latin flagrare “to blaze, glow, burn”), from root *bhel- (1) “to shine, flash, burn.”

The same root produced Old English blac “bright, shining, glittering, pale;” the connecting notions being, perhaps, “fire” (bright) and “burned” (dark), or perhaps “absence of color.” “There is nothing more variable than the signification of words designating colour” [Hensleigh Wedgwood, “A Dictionary of English Etymology,” 1859].

The usual Old English word for “black” was sweart (see swart). According to OED: “In ME. it is often doubtful whether blacblakblake, means ‘black, dark,’ or ‘pale, colourless, wan, livid.’ ” Used of dark-skinned people in Old English.

Of coffee with nothing added, attested by 1796. Black drop (1823) was a liquid preparation of opium, used medicinally. Black-fly (c. 1600) was used of various insects, especially an annoying pest of the northern American woods. Black Prince as a nickname of the eldest son of Edward III is attested by 1560s; the exact signification is uncertain.

Meaning “fierce, terrible, wicked” is from late 14c. Figurative senses often come from the notion of “without light,” moral or spiritual. Latin niger had many of the same figurative senses (“gloomy; unlucky; bad, wicked, malicious”). The metaphoric use of the Greek word, melas, however, tended to reflect the notion of “shrouded in darkness, overcast.” In English it has been the color of sin and sorrow at least since c. 1300; the sense of “with dark purposes, malignant” emerged 1580s (in black art “necromancy;” it is also the sense in black magic). Black flag, flown (especially by pirates) as a signal of “no mercy,” is from 1590s. Black dog “melancholy” attested from 1826.

Black belt is from 1870 in reference to district extending across the U.S. South with heaviest African population (also sometimes in reference to the fertility of the soil); it is attested from 1913 in the judo sense, worn by one who has attained a certain high degree of proficiency. Black power is from 1966, associated with Stokely Carmichael. Black English “English as spoken by African-Americans,” is by 1969. The Black Panther (1965) movement was an outgrowth of Student Nonviolent Co-ordinating Committee. Black studies is attested from 1968.

White Eye1004611635
Origin and meaning of black

The sclera,[help 1] also known as the white of the eye or, in older literature, as the tunica albuginea oculi, is the opaque, fibrous, protective, outer layer of the human eye containing mainly collagen and some crucial elastic fiber.[2] In humans, and many other animals, the whole sclera is white, contrasting with the coloured iris, but in some other mammals the visible part of the sclera matches the colour of the iris, so the white part does not normally show. In the development of the embryo, the sclera is derived from the neural crest.[3] In children, it is thinner and shows some of the underlying pigment, appearing slightly blue. In the elderly, fatty deposits on the sclera can make it appear slightly yellow. People with dark skin can have naturally darkened sclerae, the result of melanin pigmentation.[4]

The human eye is relatively rare for having a pale sclera (relative to the iris). This makes it easier for one individual to identify where another individual is looking, and the cooperative eye hypothesis suggests this has evolved as a method of nonverbal communication.

black (v.)

c. 1200, intrans., “to become black;” early 14c., trans., “to make black, darken, put a black color on;” from black (adj.). Especially “to clean and polish (boots, shoes, etc.) by blacking and brushing them” (1550s). Related: Blackedblacking.

black (n.)

Old English blæc “the color black,” also “ink,” from noun use of black (adj.). From late 14c. as “dark spot in the pupil of the eye.” The meaning “dark-skinned person, African” is from 1620s (perhaps late 13c., and blackamoor is from 1540s). Meaning “black clothing” (especially when worn in mourning) is from c. 1400.

To be in black-and-white, meaning in writing or in print, is from 1650s (white-and-black is from 1590s); the notion is of black characters on white paper. In the visual arts, “with no colors but black and white,” it is by 1870 of sketches, 1883 of photographs. To be in the black (1922) is from the accounting practice of recording credits and balances in black ink.

For years it has been a common practice to use red ink instead of black in showing a loss or deficit on corporate books, but not until the heavy losses of 1921 did the contrast in colors come to have a widely understood meaning. [Saturday Evening Post, July 22, 1922]

Western sandpipers on Bottle Beach in Washington state
Western sandpipers on Bottle Beach in Washington state (source: ‘Wikipedia’)
Western sandpipers are small shorebirds that tend to breed in the tundra regions of Alaska and eastern Siberia. However, they don’t hang out in those northern climes year-round: These birds are long-distance migrants and can be found inhabiting beaches and shorelines much farther south come winter. Their migratory destinations extend to the coasts of both North and South America. And some get away to the Caribbean (yes, we’re jealous). Since they are surface feeders, they feast on insects, mollusks, and small crustaceans. As our image shows, while some western sandpipers are looking for lunch on Bottle Beach in Washington state, others are getting in a quick afternoon nap.

Twin Peaks was a small logging town in northeastern Washington State, five miles south of the Canadian border and twelve miles west of the state line with Idaho. Its population was stated to be 51,201 (erroneously) on the welcome sign, before the 1990 census established that the real population was 5,120.1. Twin Peaks drew its name from the two mountains between which it lay, White Tail and Blue Pine Mountain.

“Taillights Fade”

Sister can you hear me now
The ringing in your ears
I’m down on the ground
My luck’s been dry for years

I’m lost in the dark
And I feel like a dinosaur
Broken face and broken hands
I’m a broken man

I’ve hit the wall
I’m about to fall
But I’m closing in on it
I feel so weak
On a losing streak
Watch my taillights fade to black

I read a thing about this girl
She was a hermit in her world
Her story was much like mine
She could be my valentine

And although we’ve never met
I won’t forget her yet
She cut herself off from her past
Now she’s alone at last

I feel so sick
Lost love’s last licks
But I’m closing down on it
I feel so weak
On a losing streak
Watch my taillights fade to black

Lost my life in cheap wine
Now it’s quiet time
Cappy D-ck nor Jesus Christ
Could not help my fate

But I’m underneath a gun
I’m singing about my past
Had myself a wonderful thing
But I could not make it last

I’ve hit the wall
I’m about to fall
But I’m closing in on it
I feel so small
Underneath it all

Watch my taillights fade to black
Watch my taillights fade…
Watch my taillights fade…
Watch my taillights fade…

Change = Fire (Power)

I was a straight fastball thrower, never really quite worthy of the title ‘pitcher.’

I never learned to pitch a curve ball, nor a good changeup, to my detriment, not to mention my poor

Right elbow’s.

But once or twice, in key situations at the dish, I was able somehow to hit a curve, coming through for my team.

Time slowed down, by the grace of God and I could see the

Curve ball coming out of the pitcher’s hand, could see he was gripping the ball

In that characteristic curve ball way, two fingers together along the seam, as opposed to a fastball grip with the fingers spread apart. Then, I was able to make contact and poke the slow, curving ball

Right through a hole, past an infielder’s diving reach, getting the job

Done, coming through in the clutch. By the grace of God alone. I can’t take credit for it.

An Innocent Man

Billy Joel

Some people stay far away from the door
If there’s a chance of it opening up
They hear a voice in the hall outside
And hope that it just passes by

Some people live with the fear of a touch
And the anger of having been a fool
They will not listen to anyone
So nobody tells them a lie

I know you’re only protecting yourself
I know you’re thinking of somebody else
Someone who hurt you
But I’m not above
Making up for the love
You’ve been denying you could ever feel
I’m not above doing anything
To restore your faith if I can

Some people see through the eyes of the old
Before they ever get a look at the young
I’m only willing to hear you cry
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am

Some people say they will never believe
Another promise they hear in the dark
Because they only remember too well
They heard somebody tell them before

Some people sleep all alone every night
Instead of taking a lover to bed
Some people find that it’s easier to hate
Than to wait anymore

I know you don’t want to hear what I say
I know you’re gonna keep turning away
But I’ve been there and if I can survive
I can keep you alive
I’m not above going through it again
I’m not above being cool for a while
If you’re cruel to me I’ll understand

Some people run from a possible fight
Some people figure they can never win
And although this is a fight I can lose
The accused is an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

You know you only hurt yourself out of spite
I guess you’d rather be a martyr tonight?

That’s your decision
But I’m not below
Anybody I know
If there’s a chance of resurrecting a love
I’m not above going back to the start
To find out where the heartache began

Some people hope for a miracle cure
Some people just accept the world as it is
But I’m not willing to lay down and die
Because I am an innocent man

I am an innocent man
Oh yes I am
An innocent man

chroma (n.)

in reference to color, “intensity of distinctive hue, degree of departure of a color-sensation from that of white or gray,” 1889, from Latinized form of Greek khrōma “surface of the body, skin, color of the skin,” also used generically for “color” and, in plural, “ornaments, make-up, embellishments,” a verbal noun from khroizein “to color, stain, to touch the surface of the body,” khrosthenai “to take on a color or hue,” from khros, khroia “surface of the body, skin.”

Beekes considers this noun to be of uncertain origin. It sometimes is explained as being somehow from PIE *ghreu- “to rub, grind” (see grit (n.)).

Association with royalist causes is late 18c. Slang sense of “honorable, fair” is 1877, American English; in Middle English it meant “gracious, friendly, favorable.” The racial sense “of those races (chiefly European or of European extraction) characterized by light complexion” is recorded from c. 1600; meaning “characteristic of or pertaining to white people” is from 1852, American English. White supremacy attested from 1868, American English [John H. Van Evrie, M.D., “White Supremacy and Negro Subordination,” New York, 1868]; white flight is from 1966, American English.

White way “brightly illuminated street in a big city” is from 1908. White flag of truce or surrender is from c. 1600. White lie is attested from 1741. White Christmas is attested from 1847. White House as the name of the U.S. presidential residence is recorded from 1811. White water “river rapids” is recorded from 1580s. White Russian “language of Byelorussia” is recorded from 1850; the mixed drink is from c. 1978.

Meaning “white man, person of a race distinguished by light complexion” is from 1670s; white man in this sense is from 1690s. White man’s burden is from Kipling’s 1899 poem:

Take up the White Man’s burden—

The savage wars of peace—

Fill full the mouth of Famine

And bid the sickness cease;

And when your goal is nearest

The end for others sought,

Watch sloth and heathen Folly

Bring all your hopes to nought.

lynch (v.)

1835, “inflict severe (but not deliberately fatal) bodily punishment (on someone) without legal sanction,” from earlier Lynch law (1811), in reference to such activity, which was likely named after William Lynch (1742-1820) of Pittsylvania, Virginia, who c. 1780 led a vigilance committee to keep order there during the Revolution. Other sources trace the name to Charles Lynch (1736-1796) a Virginia magistrate who fined and imprisoned Tories in his district c. 1782, but the connection to him is less likely. The surname is perhaps from Irish Loingseach “sailor.”

It implies lawless concert or action among a number of members of the community, to supply the want of criminal justice or to anticipate its delays, or to inflict a penalty demanded by public opinion, though in defiance of the laws. [Century Dictionary, 1895]

Originally any sort of summary justice, done without authority of law, for a crime or public offense; it especially referred to flogging or tarring-and-feathering. At first the act was associated with frontier regions (as in the above citation), though from c. 1835 to the U.S. Civil War it also often was directed against abolitionists. The narrowing of the meaning to “extra-legal execution by hanging” is evident by the 1880s, and after c. 1893 lynching mostly meant killings of blacks by white mobs (especially in retaliation for alleged sexual assaults of white women). This shift in use seems due in part to the work of African-American journalist and activist Ida B. Wells. Lynch mob is attested from 1838. Compare earlier Lydford law, from a place in Dartmoor, England, “where was held a Stannaries Court of summary jurisdiction” [Weekley], hence:

Lydford law: is to hang men first, and indite them afterwards. [Thomas Blount, “Glossographia,” 1656]

Also in a similar sense was Jedburgh justice (1706) and, as a verb, to Dewitt (1680s), a reference to two Dutch statesmen of that name, opponents of William of Orange, murdered by a mob in 1672. Related: Lynchedlynching. The city of Lynchburg, Virginia, dates to the 1750s when John Lynch, brother to Charles but a peaceable Quaker, had a ferry landing on the James River there.

Earlier today, sitting by the fireplace at Publick House, with a piping hot cup of black decaf coffee, I read the above story, ‘The Adventure of the Speckled Band,’ in an old book of Sherlock Holmes adventures, published 1892. I turned to this story ‘at random.’

“The Constitution of this Republic should make special provision for medical freedom. To restrict the art of healing to one class will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic. … Unless we put medical freedom into the constitution the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship and force people who wish doctors and treatment of their own choice to submit to only what the dictating outfit offers.”

All We Have Is Now

The Flaming Lips

As logic stands
You couldn’t meet a man
Who’s from the future
But logic broke
As he appeared, he spoke
About the future

“We’re not gonna make it”
He explained how the end will come
You and me were never meant to be
Part of the future

All we have is now
All we’ve ever had is now
All we have is now
All we’ve ever had is now

I noticed that
He had a watch and hat
That looked familiar
He was me
From a dimension torn free
Of the future

“We’re not gonna make it”
He explained how the end will come
You and me were never meant to be
Part of the future

All we have is now
All we’ve ever had is now
All we have is now
All we’ve ever had is now

All we have is now

Look Back in Anger

David Bowie

You know who I am, he said
The speaker was an angel
He coughed and shook his crumpled wings
Closed his eyes and moved his lips
It’s time we should be going

(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, driven by the night
Till you come
(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, see it in my eyes
Till you come

No one seemed to hear him
So he leafed through a magazine
And, yawning, rubbed the sleep away
Very sane he seemed to me

(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, driven by the night
Till you come
(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
Look back in anger, feel it in my voice
Till you come

(Waiting so long, ahhh…)
(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
(Waiting so long, I’ve been waiting so, waiting so)
(Waiting so long, ahhh…)

Spiritual Meaning of the Name Desmond [Origin, Numerology, & More]


Desmond is a Christian name that’s unique and stylish. It stands out, as does the spiritual meaning of the name Desmond – “the man of the world”. It’s an old Irish name that goes way back with ties to the kingdom of Munster, making its way to Africa and as far as the West Indie Islands.

The Origin And Spiritual Meaning Of The Name Desmond

Desmond, sometimes shortened to “Des” or “Dez” – aka “the man of the world”, the “gracious defender”, and also “the man from Munster”.

Desmond is both a first name and a surname of Irish origin. It’s of Anglo-Saxon descent and derived from Gaelic, “Deas-Mhumhna” – meaning “South Munster”. The name Desmond also means “Munster Man” or “Man From South Munster”.

Munster is a province in the country of Ireland, often written with “stadr” at the end, which is a Danish suffix that means “place”. Munster was taken from the old Irish name Mumham.

Munster is broken down into 4 kingdoms – East, West, North, and South Munster, which was called “Desmond” – Deas, meaning “south”.

Desmond is also a popular name within the Christian faith.
