Words

I have had a lifelong romance with words.

A new word I learned today: au·toch·tho·nous (adj.) = native to the place inhabited; indigenous

Words that sing: quartz, mirage, doodads, spangle, surf

Thai proverb of the day: All work and no play makes me psychosis, and work without enjoyment makes me a doll.

I love "quartz" and "spangle." I also love "sequin" and "diaphanous." (I hope I spelled that last correctly.)
