The Words We Love

LOVED the Dare by Em Falconbridge this week. LOVED it. I ended up printing this photo on matte paper and painting it with watercolors.


I said I would and I will. This blog has 10,000 hits since November. So it's time for a nice little "thanks for visiting" RAK.

I'm all about words. And pictures. Words and pictures. But today we'll go for words. Post your favorite word in the comments section (not the word you use all the time such as "like" or "cool" or "of" but a word that bears repeating due to the rolling-off-the-tongue quality. A word that you almost have to say twice because it sounds so great.

Examples:

Charming

Resound

Bangladesh (I dare you to say it just once.)

Solace

a la mode

etcetera

...

So do that, and I'll pick a random winner to recieve (drum roll please) the March Mini Kit from Good the the Last Crop, which is currently sold out, and some other little goodies!

One of my new favorite words was a port city on the coast of ancient Syria, between Asia Minor and Palestine:
