Oh, word lovers. You are my people. I spent a good part of my morning rolling these words around my mouth like marbles. I said many out loud and spent more time with a dictionary than I’d care to admit. Sometimes I even look up words I already know just because I love reading how they are described. These are good words. These are really really good words. They deserve to be written over and over again, to be used in sentences and paragraphs and stories of all kinds. They deserve to be said out loud, to be casually interjected into conversation whenever possible, proclaimed with conviction over dinner when the lull is too much, and muttered softly under breath when there’s nothing else to say.

Consider this an open call for more words. There’s no end to good words. I am sure of it.
Share some words you love with me.
