Z is for...

Whenever I see a word with “Z” in it, that word catches my attention.  It is always an interesting word.  It stands out in a crowd of words clustering around it to make a sentence.

And, a word that starts with a “Z”?  WELL, that is one amazing word.

Somehow the “Z” lends an aura of power.  Think about it:

Ezekiel (an Old Testament prophet who did amazing things)

Zed is the wizard on the left, shooting flames at you.
Zed (from “Legend of the Seeker”: a magician/wizard)

There are several movie versions, but this 1979 Peter Sellars movie is my favorite.
Zenda (as in “Prisoner of Zenda”)

Zuill was in the refrigerator, and dragged Sigourney Weaver right into the world of bad things.
Zuill (from “Ghost Busters” in the refrigerator scene)

Hazard (always an attention-getter)

Not his best movie, but it was very sexy
Zardoz (a Sean Connery movie)

Zacharias (father of John the Baptist)

Zerubbabel (part of the lineage of Christ)

Words with “Z” as their chemistry are true stand-outs. 

Huzzah! for the letter “Z”!

This concludes the A-to-Z 2012 Challenge.
