What’s the word…?

onism

A friend recently shared a fabulous find, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, in which creator, John Koenig, has invented new words for humanity to utilize, and wherein “each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language – to give a name to emotions we all might experience, but don’t yet have a word for.”

I was particularly struck by the “onism” concept, as I suffer from it myself, from time to time. That image above came from an article highlighting the project, and then I took a look at the source site, and found this beautiful video to accompany the word. The explorer in me wept at its conclusion.

The whole video series really looks quite remarkable. What an awesome adventure in the language of emotion and the human experience :)

Making adventure where I can

I just came across a note-to-self to “start an annual new-destination tradition” – Great Idea! I am definitely the type of traveler who would prefer to see a little bit of a lot of locations, rather than a lot of just a few spots. A large part of the joy of travel for me is the thrill of witnessing something brand new. So, I asked myself how to go about starting such a custom, then considered when the last time I visited a new destination was, and came up with my day-trip to San Antonio on 1/14/14. Henceforth, that shall be my go-someplace-I’ve-never-been date :D Every January, I will make sure I go somewhere I’ve never experienced, whether I take a trip to a far-off land, or even if it’s just a new restaurant, park, or road.

Fun! :)
