ABC Wednesday - R is for Rough

Rough

There is a great book of selected early writings by Theodore Geisel (aka, Dr. Seuss) named Tough Coughs as He Ploughs the Dough. One of the short stories involves the intensive complexity of the English language when it comes to certain letter groups, for example ough. Each of the the ough words in the title are pronounced differently from any of the others.

Not that this has anything to do with the picture, other than the fact that I'm expressing roughness. While this is merely a section of a rock wall at my office, it could be thought of as a view of a piece of sand paper through a magnifying glass.

Love your perception, most particularly the sandpaper through a magnifying glass.
