Do you know of words that invoke colours in your mind?
Mine is ‘to nurture’. And, one definition of ‘to nurture’ is to encourage.
Every time I hear of the word ‘nurture’, I get visions of someone putting colours in my mind. Like, someone prodding, pushing, or jabbing colours in my mind; maybe a metaphor to do something. I think it’s because of its translation in Malay. ‘To nurture’ in Malay is ‘pupuk’.
To nurture someone sends a string of “Pupuk, pupuk, pupuk” in my mind, that makes me associate poking actions with this word.
To nurture: To push yourself (or someone) to make life a little more colourful.
