What Are Ten Dollar Thoughts?

I have long been teased by friends and family alike for peppering casual conversations with SAT-quality vocabulary. It’s not something I do intentionally, but it is something I do regularly. I suppose it’s because a lifetime of reading has left me with a catalog of unusual words. One friend in particular calls these my “ten dollar words.” And so, taking the metaphor a step further, I am here to explore ideas and concepts that are new and challenging to me: “Ten Dollar Thoughts” if you will.

I hope my discussions here will be new and challenging to you too, and that you will join the discussion to challenge me further.  I welcome your responses, thoughts, and contradictions.  What better way to learn than from dialog and conversation!
