I didn't even know about Star Signs, or Linda's interest in them until I acquired a computer, got internet access, and joined LindaLand in March of 2005.
That's right folks!
I was then a total computer newbie, who had just gotten a computer, and it was my first time on the internet also in that March of 2005!
Then when some folks here saw my Lexigrams they began accusing me of using generators!
I was like..
"huh? What is a generator?"
I'd been Lexigramming nearly 45 years to date, by that time,
without having ever been on a computer;
so was not using a computer program to Lexigram.
Even since having had a few strokes, which have affected my concentration, and vision acuity, I still do them by hand,
using my mind and yes,
old hard copy real printed on paper bound dictionaries and thesauri;
and only consult a generated list if I want to find words that are uncommon/archaic,
and or not in my personal mental vocabulary.
I still dream about and create Lexigrams whilst asleep,
and write down phrases which come to me in dreams,
on a note pad always kept by my bed.
I keep note pads in the bathroom to spontaneously write down Lexigram phrases as they come to me and use tape recorders also.
I finally got myself a digital recorder so that when when it is dark for any reason,
lights out, and or my eyes are glitching,
or I am in bed due to my disabilities acting up;
I can still note the Lexigram phrases that come to me.
(in addition to wonky eyes, I get total black blindness episodes; but fortunately usually just partial blindness episodes from time to time)
I have been Lexigramming and Anagramming for over 5 decades, over 1/2 a century to date.
2017 marks 57 years so far***
I learned much from my great grandparents. Many new and other ways have come to my attention since then.
However the way I was taught,
is the easiest
and most logical,
and the only error free,
no cheating way I have yet encountered to date.
Lexigramming is also a very ancient art, or form of divination and secret coding,
going back at least a couple thousand years.
Many games of Anagramming using vintage early 1900s letter tiles and boards were a part of my childhood in the 1950s and 1960s. Scrabble was a later passion as the old Anagram games wore out from frequent use.
My partner is as passionate as I am about the art of and yes, the science and even mystery of Lexigramming and Anagramming.
He learned of them at a very young age from his grandmother, and has been doing them for over 3 1/2 decades.
So betwixt us, there is over 85 years Lexigramming and Anagramming experience.
2017 marks about 95 years experience so far
between my husband and I.
In late 2019 we will have 100 YEARS COMBINED EXPERIENCE LEXIGRAMMING BETWIXT US!
AN ENTIRE CENTURY!***
I wonder if we will reach 200 years Lexigramming experience betwixt us?
It is possible!
I have also in addition to Lexigramming;
have been reading dictionaries etc., for pleasure for over 57 years to date!
(as of 2017).
I have more Lexigramming experiences to tell,
so to be continued.
therefore I am immortal
