FOWC with Fandango — Colony

FOWC

It’s April 15, 2022. Welcome to Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (aka, FOWC). I will be posting each day’s word just after midnight Pacific Time (U.S.).

Today’s word is “colony.”

Write a post using that word. It can be prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction. It can be any length. It can be just a picture or a drawing if you want. No holds barred, so to speak.

Once you are done, tag your post with #FOWC and create a pingback to this post if you are on WordPress. Please check to confirm that your pingback is there. If not, please manually add your link in the comments.

And be sure to read the posts of other bloggers who respond to this prompt. Show them some love.

    Richard Stengel on “American Voices [with Alicia Mendez]” today:

    2500 years ago, Tacitus said about the destruction of Carthage, “They created a dessert, and they called it peace.”

    The commentator/analyst said we need to “figure out better terminology” than to say something Russia does is a “victory.” He was speaking if Mariupol.

      Well, I messed up with italics, again.

      The commentator/analyst [Richard Stengel] said we need to “figure out better terminology” than to say something Russia does is a “victory.” He was speaking of Mariupol.

      Here is what I intentioned to present as a full quotation: 2500 years ago, Tacitus said about the destruction of Carthage, “They created a dessert, and they called it peace.”

      I also intended to include this link.

      Julius Caesar would reestablish Carthage as a Roman colony, and his successor, Augustus, supported its redevelopment. After several decades, Carthage became one of Rome’s most important colonies.
