If you live across cultures you may stumble on language quirks: words your brain hears differently than intended, simply because you’re not a native speaker.
A super slow version of Ain’t it funky now played in the background, and a title, “Fønk,” flashed across the screen.
We assumed “Fønk” is Norwegian for the English, “Funk.” But seeing it with that “ø” threw my brain to the Dutch, “Vonk,” and voila:
Vonk is the lovely Dutch word for Spark.
Y’all know good vibes and Funk/Fønk will Spark/Vonk more goodness and Funk wherever they go. 😉
Tweak your ears, what language pops do you find?
After all, the Babel story says we all spoke one language, and the Human story says we’re All One Family. <3
P.s., this series was sparked by Library/ Liberty/Libra (Justice)– Stay tuned for that banger! (and I can’t wait to throw down on “Rights” with you!)
But before we go..
Wink from the Universe:
The “Fønk/Vonk” connection was found right after serious jamming on Chief Rocker – Lords of the Underground ⇓
Starting to rock hard (the track was on replay) and calling out favorite lines, I had just passed a digital note across the table on, you guessed it:
They don’t understand how I feel about the funk..
How do you feel when you hear a banger? When was the last time you put on a favorite jam? Get to it, there’s literal healing in music. <3
(Can’t miss an opp to share some super funk, like it was shared with me–fire begets fire). #Khruangbin.
Get your groove on and spark others!
Enjoy, spread the love/funk, spark goodness and unity through beats and flow, Any and Everywhere. The world needs it now more than ever. <3
(and us-versus-them’ism doesn’t stand a chance).
And you never know when a divine Vonk will break out 😉

Hey Peeps, I use He & His as simple pronouns for God, but fully recognize “God” with male and female “identity” (for lack of a better word) as demonstrated throughout the bible but most blatantly through humanity.
