words on wednesday

words. they're amazing. they describe, they label, they are put together to make lyrics and poems. they dance in the minds of the people who like to play with them, they wander not knowing which one will be chosen and spoken in the minds of the unsure or sad. there are words that have been hurried out and not chosen well by someone who is scared or hurt or angry. they're used to talk about feelings in the mouths of all people.
and every word means something.
there's a quote about words that I like:

Words are like X-Rays. If you use them right, they can pierce right through you.

that's true. they can pierce through you and full you with something new, something good. but sometimes they can pierce through you and leave you feeling empty or heart broken.
we have to be careful how we use words.

and here are some wonderful ones. kick back and relax if you're planning to read on, because this will be quite a long post.


I'm sure we've all encountered a selcouth or two somewhere along the path of the life we've lived so far.

I have a smultronställe. do you? :) I've actually always wondered what this was called. now my curiosity on that matter is tamed. {fun-fact: don't know how to make an A with two dots above using the keyboard? alt 0228. try it and it will make that A for you. (hold down alt till you've typed all of those numbers, then let go)}

I love adoxography. tip: people seem to like adoxography posts {saying this because I do}, so, if you don't know what to post, maybe you should go for that.

that wonderful smell...

had a bad case of clinomania yesterday morning.

♥♥♥

can't tell you how many times I've felt this. didn't know the word for it till now.

I clearly have a logolepsy.

kalon...the beauty inside.

ever felt some tarantism?

I made the images myself, the words I found on Pinterest.
I hope you've enjoyed learning these new words. they are all selcouth.
have a lovely Wednesday. ♥

  2. Hey Tane,
    I got your question on my blog :) So just go to layout and then click edit on the bottom corner of the blog posts box. Then go all the way down to the bottom where it says arrange items, and then just drag the "comments" box to the right side. I hope that made sense =)

  3. *cough* If I may interrupt, if you use this code (below), it should move your comments link to the right. :}

    .comment-link {
    float: right;
    }


    Just thought I could help. :}

    Also; this post is beautiful. I love learning unique/quirky/uncommon words. :) I seem to have severe clinomania, though. o-o I better get that checked out...

    xoxo,
    Rosie

  4. Lovely post! Yes, our words do hold a lot of power. To either build up, revive, and refresh, or to break down and can be harmful.
    But words are very beautiful when we use them for His glory. <3

  9. Oooh, I love these words! But smultronställe makes me a bit sad; in the library with my school friends is one place free of stress, and sitting in the greenroom/changing room/theater rehearsal building in the back of the theater that's bigger than my school three times, but now some of my friends are moving out of town or aren't in the same learning community as I would be (we're going to high school), and the places where my theater group hang out deep into the night.... well, I don't see them anymore. :( But lovely post, Tane! Lovely. :)

    xoxo Morning
