. . . Or is it mindful? What exactly does it mean? I have just heard an announcement saying ‘please be mindful of the icy conditions’ The first time i heard the word ‘mindful’ it was in one of the more recent Star Wars efforts. It strikes me that there must be a legal issue here. Why don’t they say ‘careful’ ? Do they mean take care or do they mean use your mind? What does it mean to be ‘full of mind’ ?
