la danse du mots

Lately there have been words running through my head that I can't seem to get rid of. I don't know why my conscious pulled them from the dusty corners of memory and decided to shove them to the front of my mind, but there they sit and pace the day away waiting to be spoken into existence.

There was once a writer who said that of all the endless combinations of words in the English language, "Cellar Door" was the most beautiful.
Here are some of my favorites:

              blandiloquent                                         mellifluous
                                                                                              penumbra                                                                     lithe                              

But the very best I think?
Because it means forever and ever and then after that


  1. what beautiful words! i know gossamer and ephemeral have always been two of my favorites, along with ethereal, shimmering... this is a sweet blog ♥

  2. That picture, for some reason, has popped into my head more than once since I saw it a while ago on here.
    Im in love with the lighting, the white blouse, the hat, everything!
