I have a collection of blog feeds coming to my RSS reader. The topics I follow span a wide range of interests including ashtanga yoga, cooking, photography, parenting, grieving and (of course) the few remaining Running Blog Family (RBF) blogs to which my blog writing and reading began with. Many of the blogs listed in my RSS feed have not posted in several years but were favorites of mine. I keep them there just in case they dust off their blog and post something for me.
There is one blog that’s unique writing style stands out from the rest. Although the topic might not resonate with many, the writer’s words are as mesmerizing as a frosting so delicate in sweetness that it hastens the swallow.
This writer sprinkles in a word or two in nearly every post in which I am prompted to look up in order to fully appreciate the thoughts she has shared. Different from other times when I come across a new word, her beautifully chosen words make me want to know exactly what she has said (even when I can infer the meaning from the context). Today, I decided to scan through the past 5 or so posts to retrieve some of the tasty words she has teased me with. I quickly came up with a list of words which, as I reviewed, I realized that the word itself isn’t all that inviting without the perfectly pictured presentation.
Nonetheless, I look forward to finding ways to incorporate some of these words into my own writing — which you may or may not find pleasure in reading.
