Inertia has two contradictory definitions–one for the young and one for the old.  

Inertia for the young: The tendency of an object in motion to remain in motion.

For the old: The tendency of an object at rest to remain at rest.

What an all-inclusive word. A little something for everyone!


Thanks for the prompt, Fandango!!!


Fandango’s very first prompt word for us in his new prompt site is inertia. If you want to play along, go to this link for instructions, write your post and post it on the Mr Linky site you’ll find there.  Simple.

About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.
