3138 Random thought

"[Abstract art is] a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled to the utterly bewildered."
-- Al Capp --

-----------------------------------------------

Where did "hello" come from as a greeting?
Does it have anything to do with Hell being low?
Is it like giving people directions on where to go?
If so, is that a nice thing to say to someone?
Is "hi" as a greeting the opposite? Go high?

-------------------------------------

[Interesting discussion at http://www.endicott-studio.com/rdrm/forhello.html. I found that after my musing.]

Hi Silk..or Hello..or Hey There, or anything but Greetings!, I just found you again. We are in the middle of a multi-month move also, although our new house is in the same zipcode as the former one. It is going to take me much longer to unpack than it would have in the past. I always enjoy your writing and didn't want to just lurk in and run. A Sue from Jackie's.
