History of Enough, April 21, 2016
In the History of Enough, I was thinking of the word itself. In all of its contexts, it seemed to have a finite meaning; In terms of movement, it is a word that implies a stop after a series of actions.

In creating a poem that is an ode to its concept, I traced the etymology of the word letting each word either grow or reduce into the next until it comes to the modern word of enough.

What started the focus on enough was a mix of the phrase, “enough is enough” and the idea of something being enough as in not needing to be more. With those thoughts, the word flowing until it stopped was just as it is defined, enough.
