Day 1312: Momentum

Let me take a moment to affect the early momentum of this momentous post by defining momentum.

[moh-men-tuh m]

noun, plural momenta [moh-men-tuh], momentums.
1. force or speed of movement; impetus, as of a physical object or course of events:
The car gained momentum going downhill. Her career lost momentum after two unsuccessful films.
2.Also called linear momentum. Mechanics. a quantity expressing the motion of a body or system, equal to the product of the mass of a body and its velocity, and for a system equal to the vector sum of the products of mass and velocity of each particle in the system.
3. Philosophy. moment.

Can be confused
memento, momentum.

How will it affect the momentum of this post if I

  • confess that — like momento and momentum —  I can be confused, too?
  • share that I associate the word “momentum” with political races?
  • state that I am developing momenta in feeling more positive and hopeful about the future?

How will it affect the momentum of this post if I show you this photo from yesterday?


How will my other photos from yesterday affect the momentum?










I’m developing momentum to sing at an Open Mic tomorrow evening. Recording myself singing the song a capella, this morning, is part of that momentum.


How’s your momentum, here and now?

I’ve got the momenta to thank all those who helped me create this post and you — of course! — for reading it.

  1. The red bull given wiiings! 😂

  2. According to one of Newton’s laws an object in motion will remain in motion unless acted upon by other forces. Sometimes though you’ve got to break the law and keep going right through those other forces.
    To be clear: don’t let anything stop you from singing.

  3. it’s speeding up, sorta. 🚀

  4. Sounds to me like you’ve got some momentum going!

  5. I think your momentum is continuing and that is a good thing.

  6. The momentum in my head is quicker now than in my limbs 🙂

  7. Momentum is energy that has come alive and is now seeking to explore new paths.

  8. I get my momentum from the positive energy of others around me. Love me some good people to get me going!

  9. Love the pix of the bench. It stops my momentum as I take a rest.
