peripheral perceptions

a look at life from the corners of my mind

I suffer from a condition called Lassitude

16 Comments


Welcome to Round 7 of ABC Wednesday. The meme was started by Mrs. Denise Nesbitt, and people from all over the world come together to play and share their entries. Each week word(s) beginning with the designated letter are selected and illustrate through a photo, poem or prose. My twist on the meme is selecting unusual words and pairing them with photos of familiar things in my world. I’ll be pulling words from sources here, here and, of course, here.

Let’s get unusual.

lapideous: stony.
A stream bed full of rocks was simply too tempting. While at a recent music festival, kids of all ages took advantage of creek-stomping and hill climbing on a fine Fall day.

largifical: ample; bountiful.
Down the road about an hour or so is a Mennonite country store with a more than ample bounty of goodies.

lepidopterology: study of butterflies and moths.
lepidopterous: having four wings, such as a moth or butterfly.
A day trip to the St Louis Zoo included a stroll through the butterfly sanctuary. It was full of butterflies (and photo opps) of every shape, size and color.

lassitude: state of being tired or weary.
On that recent trip to the zoo, Peanut hung in there like a trooper, not wanting to miss a moment of fun. But once we settled into the car for the long ride home, she just couldn’t hold out any longer. Don’t think she even made it out of the parking lot.

  3. Feeling lassitude myself.

    That stony creek reminded me of the Laura Nyro song Stoney End, which Barbra Streisand famously covered. (Yes, that IS how my brain works – are you surprised?)

  9. Lassitude. I’ve always loved that word, perhaps because the French version sounds so much like what it is… je suis lasse.

    Another L word I love? Largesse. It sounds splendidly generous. And what’s more Lovely than Largesse?
