Words That Will Make You Want To Explore
I often find myself at a loss for words to describe an emotion. I am far from a linguist and wish I could speak multiple languages but I do love finding words (in other languages or in English) that express a feeling better than I could ever do myself. Here are a few of my favorites and I would love to hear yours in the comments.
Greek: Someone with a deep sensitivity to the beauty of art or nature
Japanese: Sunlight that filters through the leaves of trees
Old English: To wander longingly through the forest in search of mystery
German: An ache for distant places
Greek: The sound of the wind through the trees
Greek: The smell of earth after rain
Welsh: A place where a person or an animal feels it ought to live and belong; it is where nature around you feels right and welcoming
Irish: The relationship one has with the land, the air, the water; a deep connection that makes you one with nature
Japanese: A visit to the forest for relaxation. Literally: Forest Bathing
Icelandic: “window-weather” as in, the kind of weather that’s nice to look at, but not experience.
