Welcome to the A-Z April blogging challenge. We are participating with a daily dose of vocabulary by selecting an unusual word and making a sentence with it.


- deep contemplation performed while naked

"I am not advocating you to take up gymnosophy, but I do find it a very interesting concept."

How would you use this word in a sentence?

Even with all the crazy words I see with my tweet tales, I'd never seen this one. I do think about a lot of things while I shower - does that count? :-)

Hope you’re having fun with the A to Z challenge,

Never, ever heard that word. It's totally bizarre - I must use it sometime.

Vidya Sury said...

"Many of my best ideas have emerged through gymnosophy, in the shower"

:-) Nice going, Duncan! A to Z on two blogs - wonderful! Just visited the A to Z of hotels.

My wife is addicted to gymnosophym she goes to the gym three times a week.

Duncan D. Horne - the Kuantan blogger (大哥) said...

Jocelyn, Vidya, I think gymnosophy in the shower is rather popular - I do that too! It's probavly the only time of the day I truly have to myself for some silence and pondering.

Thanks for stopping by, Bob

Multi tasking mama, yep, you should incorporate this word into your life!

I have to agree with in the shower. That's where I ponder the meaning of life. ;) Thanks for stopping by my blog! :)

Grammy Staffy said...

You taught me a new word. I will practice gymnosophy but only in my shower.
Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. It is nice to meet you through Z to Z. I hope you will come back again.

Bradley Charbonneau said...

Ha, I dared look the word up as it sounded too far fetched! But yep, there it is! What a fun word. Love the collation of A to Z you have going here.

"A lifetime of gymnosophy was bound to cause Bob problems sooner or later. Shopping malls just aren't the place for that kind of contemplation."

I know, my sentence isn't great, but I wanted to play along. Very cool A to Z theme.
