Re: Word of Today

Hapax would be a great band name. I think I am reserving it.

Potluck it is! We could have a study group meet, too.

Diligence. Formalism. Positivism.

I am giving myself a bit of goosebumps.

You're welcome


Though rather short-lived if they play only once, don't you think?


How about Catharsis ?

Hahahah, catharsis is a synonym for my life, and I am tired of it . Besides there are probably a few heavy metal bands called that already. It's an excellent word and concept, anyways.

Syncopized. I had to do a lot of that today at a rehearsal.

Re: Word of Today

awakening
I don't know how to swim.

......telesthesia

trustworthy
am and remain

matter
it does.. I knew


Senses or making sense

The two do not correlate
One is rational
The other feels, senses, knows without being told, without seeing, just knows.

I do this also before writing an essay.
Meditate, feel, sense the author even of centuries ago.
I ask permission to write.

Warm understanding
Caring peace

Re: Word of Today

Words

No words could ever express a feeling.
And if they could then it would be captured and defined.
If defined, it would exist.
If it existed it would be destined to disappear.
May the love escape the words.

Re: Word of Today

Politeness


In truth, politeness is artificial good humor, it covers the natural want of it, and ends by rendering habitual a substitute nearly equivalent to the real virtue.

Re: Word of Today

Regularity.


No matter how unappealing and ordinary it may sound, it is an amazing vehicle. It is an engine, a driving force for anything that needs time and space to develop. Regularity is my mantra these days, in rehearsals, piano practice, creativity, writing. It is a very positive concept. As a teacher, creating a habit of practising something is almost as important as the primary intrinsic motivation.

Re: Word of Today

Introvert
Quiet introvert, love people - from afar.

Serenity
A beautiful Fall afternoon, a fascinating class, my loved ones.

Love
Loved deep enough to let go.

Haven
My corner of the library where the sun shines through, just so.
Catching thoughts into words as they stumble and tumble.

Pernacity


I love this thread, I really do. And I love reading all the new words every few days. I thought I could let this go, but it's been circling my brain...


I think you mean pertinacity. Or tenacity.


Perspicacious, while I'm at it...
