Day 415: Chilling

Well, I have to get myself together and remember how to do a Work Day, dear readers, so this is going to be a short post.

I think. We shall see, won’t we?

So, the topic is “Chilling.”

Here’s my first definition of that word. And, you know what?  For the first time since I started this blog, I am NOT going to consult any other source — expert, on-line, or otherwise — about the “right” words to define or explain.  I’m just going to trust that I can make up a definition that’s good enough:


(verb form)

Being cool, letting go of  concerns.

Antonym:  Worrying

Honestly, that is something that I am working on, every single moment.  Like now.  With every word I write. And in the spaces between the words and the paragraphs, too.

That helps.

Let’s see if I have any pictures, to illustrate that use of the word “Chilling”.

I MUST have some within easy reach —  I just got back from six days in Panama, people!

Here are some photos that fit the bill (although I am making some assumptions about other people’s states of mind):











Now, I wanted to include other definitions, including these:



Cold, creating a feeling of coldness.

Antonym: Warming




Scary, frightening, terrifying

Antonym: Reassuring


… but I need to end this post, and return to work.

I’m glad I spent more time, this morning, on that first definition of “Chilling.”

Thanks to the people of Boquete, Panama — residents and visitors — and to you — of course! — for visiting here today.

  1. It looks hot – no wonder you want to be ‘chilling”.

  2. I have been waiting for your first warming photo of that Panama music fest you alluded to before and during your trip. And you served it up, chilled, today. Thank you, Ann.

  3. Love the photos – welcome back!

  4. Safe and sound, and on the (frozen) ground.

  5. Yes, welcome back — I’m glad to be able to spend some time chilling with you and your memories of your trip! Cool!

  6. Love the photos, even though climbing the wall might be a little closer to the adjective rather than the verb 🙂

    • It all depends upon your perspective, doesn’t it? Thanks so much, Anne!

      • Yes it does, I would have loved to climb the wall 🙂 it was just my lame try of being “funny”, that didn’t come trough, guess it don’t help I forgot some of the ” ” signs and a big fat smile at the end, sorry sometimes I foul up my translating to English, it sounded good in my head 🙂

      • It sounded good in my head, also, Anne. I loved your comment (and this second one from you, too).

    Really Ann? The first thing I thought of when I saw “chilling” was looking out my window and seeing snow falling – again!! – oh, and shoveling ice and snow in my sneakers (and Panama hat 🙂 to get my car out of the parking lot Monday night at Logan Express!! The story can be told so many different ways…

  8. Hi Ann, this is Alok from Los Establos. I noticed the picture of the 4 of us (Jyoti, Sanjay, Anju & Alok) in your Chilling section, and of course Sanjay’s & Jyoti’s picture on your 1st cup of coffee:) Very nice meeting you and hope you had a safe journey back home. We are missing Panama as the snow still flies in Michigan!

  9. I like to ‘chill’ with friends and family, too! Your photos truly represent relaxation and happiness, too! Smiles, robin
