A representation of one line segment

Three lines — the red and blue lines have the same slope, while the red and green ones have same y-intercept.

In Euclidean geometry, a line is a straight curve. When geometry is used to model the real world, lines are used to represent straight objects with negligible width and height. Lines are an idealization of such objects and have no width or height at all and are usually considered to be infinitely long. Lines are a fundamental concept in some approaches to geometry such as Euclid’s, but in others such as analytic geometry and Tarski’s axioms they enter as derived notions defined in terms of more fundamental primitives such as points.

A line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points and contains every point on the line between its end points. Depending on how the line segment is defined, either of the two end points may or may not be part of the line segment. Two or more line segments may have some of the same relationships as lines, such as being parallel, intersecting, or skew.

Some lines from Wordsworth:

.... Are clad in one green hue, and lose themselves
      'Mid groves and copses. Once again I see
      These hedge-rows, hardly hedge-rows, little lines
      Of sportive wood run wild: these pastoral farms, ....

The Creative Prompt Project, also, has a Flickr group, which you can join to  post your responses. I created this spot so those of you without blogs and websites would have a place to post your responses.

  1. I have really enjoyed participating in this project. I wonder how many others are playing along but simply do not comment or post their responses. In the end it is entirely up to you to decide if you want to continue as I am sure that this can be a bit time consuming for you. When you began the CPP, what had you envisioned? Did you think you would still be doing this on a weekly basis a year and a half later? You certainly inspired me to put pen to paper.

  2. I will stay on as long as you keep it going. Sometimes the CPP word is the ONLY thing I can manage to do that is creative! If I get in a slump or just pressed for time, I often find myself sitting down with my sketchbook and working on a word for this project. It is my comfortable ‘friendly’ art piece or sometimes masterpiece! 🙂
