Terpsichorean

Da Goddess @ 23:45

I threw that word out to King Arthur earlier this evening as we were gazing up at the clouds in the sky. There was one in particular that was wispy and evoked movement, like that of dance. In other words, it was terpsichorean in nature.

Why does this word — or any word, for that matter — stick in one’s brain? I’m not sure. All I know is that it was there and it was deployed. It was our word of the day.

I do so enjoy pulling out a word from my databank and applying it aptly to whatever the moment calls for. I do so enjoy sitting on the front porch, watching the clouds — alone or with KA. I love when nature gifts us with the glory God has infused in it. To me, that’s about as close as you can get to heaven while still alive on this earth. That and using the talents God gave us to identify those moments and the scenes around us.

As a bit of a non-footnote:

Again, there you have it: your word for the day. Er, rather, your word for the weekend.

  1. Wow! Never heard of it before! But I will find a suitable piece of silence in which to utilize it, not to worry… :D

  2. No, no, speak it aloud, proudly!

    I don’t know how long that word was sitting in my head before it just burst forth and fit the situation perfectly. That’s how Wordy McWordsmith works around here. Let it marinate and then spontaneously erupt from the soul in the ideal moment. (It happens every couple of decades, so don’t think it happens often)
