Wondrous Words Wednesday

Okay, it’s a little late in the day, but it is still Wednesday, and I have a couple of words for you. You know how this works – share a few words from your current book that you had to look up, then head over to Bermuda Onion’s Weblog to learn some new ones.

This week, my words are from Walter Mosley’s When the Thrill Is Gone. This review is coming up soon – the book was terrific!

1. Zazen –┬áZen meditation, usually performed in the lotus position.

It was like the experience of a zazen breath exhaled into a room where it had become both real and ethereal.

2. Nacreous –┬áconsisting of or resembling mother-of-pearl

I pressed the nacreous, rectangular button and waited patiently.

 

That’s it for this week! I haven’t had many good words lately — obviously, I need to find some more challenging books!

What new words did YOU learn this week?
