Certain words feel similar to me – either they feel related in my mouth when I say them, or they invoke a certain color or smell. For example:

Page. Magic. Squirrel. Whisper. Flamingo. Dustbin. Cricket. Anthropologist.

These words have similar feelings, even though they are not necessarily connected in meaning. Is it just me, or does throwing the word ‘Truck’ in there seem to mess up the fragile sequence? A good, satisfying sentence results when similar words are grouped into arrangements like bouquets of flowers on the page.
