Words of the Week for February 18th, 2019
Fiction Felines is back to its regularly-scheduled posts! We’re all still recovering and mourning, but the hiatus can’t be allowed to continue because of that. To keep with the theme of three words, Zach has contributed for this week. We haven’t yet decided if his contribution will become weekly.
Diane’s word for the week is philocaly, which means, according to Oxford Dictionaries, “love of beauty.” With Catarina passing, she fell into a rough week and needed to find something to help her get through. She decided to start looking at what she finds enjoyable and beautiful instead of to the past.
Philocaly is the only way I’m going to get through this semester.
Jasmine’s word for the week is perambulate, which means, according to Oxford Dictionary, “walk or travel through or round a place or area, especially for pleasure and in a leisurely way.” After Catarina passed, she took to sprinting around and trying to find her. Almost a week later, she’s beginning to calm down again.
I’m starting to learn how to perambulate instead of sprinting around.
Zach’s word for the week is solivagant, which means, according to Merriam-Webster, “a solitary wanderer.” Most of his days have been like this, since Zach and Diane aren’t able to see each other during the days.
My busy schedule has turned me into a solivagant during the day.
