I’m a Lover of Words

I am a lover of words. There are so many beautiful words that aren’t known to many people and its a shame because they are so wonderful. There are also many words that can’t be translated into a different language, they are unique to the culture from which they originate. Words like: Waldeinsamkeit (german) which it the feeling of being left alone in the woods or words like  Komorebi which describes the sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees. These types of words make me so happy! They describe feelings, emotions, or experiences that we may have.

I have been subscribed to a channel called Wong Fu Productions for a while and each short story they put out has been amazing, but when they made a short film called Komorebi I was ecstatic! If you want to check out their amazing short film, Click Here or go follow them at Wong Fu Productions.

Anyway, I have been wanting to do this for a while now and if you guys like this it can become a regular thing (comment below if you want this to be regular). I am going to give you ten words most of you don’t know and their beautiful definitions.
