mischievous... looking for trouble
lively... constantly in motion
shrewd... cunning personality
photo found:
~ PUCK ~ a mischievous sprite in English folklore!

Carmen from TAILS OF A BIOMOUSE selected 
as the WEEKWORD...

Surely ~
you'll agree with me 
that PUCK qualifies as a character 
with a "MERCURIAL nature"...

definition HERE.
bloggers with MERCURIAL interpretations 
are listed at Carmen's BLOG

... Another example of ART in DOWNTOWN SLO
NOTE: all pictures taken by me except for the fourth one down


  1. Well this looks like the most mischievious and sexy Puck I have ever seen.(-: A really wonderful statue ~ you can almost see him move.

  2. Awesome post! I love how you started with just his toes, what a tease to leave us wondering in the beginning... Puck is totally mercurial :-)

    Boy, I'm sorry to have missed this word. We were away for 4 days this week, so I just couldn't swing it. Darn good word, too. I enjoyed seeing your take on it.

  3. Great take of WeekWord! I had to laugh about Puck - yes, he definitely qualifies.

  4. what a great post, you have definately got Puck well sussed!

  5. Oh, great job! Lovely photos and wonderful take on the word. Made me smile!

  6. Was he trying to lure you into mischief? That glint in his eye...

  7. Oh oh ohhh Puck is the most mercurial literary/mythic figure I can think of and one I loved dearly throughout my literature classes.

    If we shadows have offended,
    Think but this, and all is mended,
    That you have but slumber'd here
    While these visions did appear.
    And this weak and idle theme,
    No more yielding but a dream,
    Gentles, do not reprehend:
    if you pardon, we will mend:
    And, as I am an honest Puck,
    If we have unearned luck
    Now to 'scape the serpent's tongue,
    We will make amends ere long;
    Else the Puck a liar call;
    So, good night unto you all.
    Give me your hands, if we be friends,
    And Robin shall restore amends.

    Great choice Chris!

  8. Well he looks mercurial but I've never heard of him!

  9. Love the pictures of the sculptures, they really personify the word!

  10. good thoughts on Mercurial--nice iamges too! :-D
