Paul at Mind Parts wrote a post about Wordle..  I have been checking it out.

I LOVE Wordle. There is so much you can do with it. Thank you, Paul!

I have found that you can use CTR Z to go back through the ones you have created and CTL Y to go forward again.

These are a couple of the 30 I did using a word list I came up with a few years ago when I was processing an experience I had. I tried different variations of the same theme.

The purple is how I felt in the beginning. Then came the black ones, which left me with red ones, which represent my heart leaking all over the place. I was crushed and betrayed.


  1. This is very interesting. Thanks for posting it. It’s always interesting to see where our mind goes.

  2. Very very nice!!! And thanks for the backward/forward tip. On a Mac, it’s the Command key not Control. Works great!

    I like how you grouped the colors together. I think it would be interesting to do a word cloud every month or two… and compare them over time. Good for you!

    • I did have fun with it. I put the words in a document with different weights and one or two added words. I tried, I think, three or four different settings and then just kept randomizing. I copied the ones I “felt” fit. I wish there was an easier way of copying them, though. I click on the open in window and then maximize the window before doing print screen. That makes it as big as possible and I have to do a little less cropping.
