Dearest Rustlers,

Do you have a favourite word in English, or any other language? We were in a city bookstore the other day and came across a most beautiful title:

Lost in Translation: An Illustrated Compendium of Untranslatable Words from Around the World by Ella Frances Sanders.

Have you read this? 

Well, you must.  You'll discover words like komorebi, a Japanese word used to describe the phenomena when sunlight filters through the leaves of trees.  Who knew words could describe something so specific?

So do you have a favourite word?  We'd love to hear your thoughts!

As for my favourite word? Mine is probably wanderlust.

Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines wanderlust as:

  1. :  strong longing for or impulse toward wandering.

  2.  a strong desire to travel


And who doesn't love travel, right? 




  • Melody, I love the word. Even the way it sounds is beautiful. ❤️
