WORDS I LOVE:

Sometimes, at the fault of the writer or the English language or both, we don't have the right words to express something. In addition to the description above, here is a list of words from other languages that package the intangibles of my work up nicely. Hopefully they will resonate with you! 

Boketto 

Japanese |

The act of gazing out into the distance with no thoughts, losing yourself in the vast, almost unseeing horizon.

Smultronställe 

Swedish | 

Literally, it means "wild strawberry patch." But it has also come to mean a special place discovered, treasured, returned to for solace and relaxation; a personal idyll free from stress or sadness. It means my cabin in the woods, or my favorite camping spot in view of the Teton mountains. 

Merak 

Serbian | 

A word that describes the "feeling of bliss and the sense of oneness with the universe that comes from the simplest of pleasures. It is the pursuit of small, daily pleasures that add up to a great sense of happiness and fulfillment." It's a word that's about the process, not the product. 

Wabi-Sabi 

Japanese | 

One definition says "A way of living that focuses on finding beauty within the imperfections of life and accepting peacefully the natural cycle of growth and decay." In English, we might say "Authenticity."

Sehnsucht 

German |

 "A wistful longing and yearning in the heart for travels that have been and travels to come." It means: me.
