word of the week

a new thing of mine. there are so many new words swimming near me on this journey. or perhaps I am just paying more mind to the world, to my reading, to life. perhaps.

petrichor (PET-ri-kuhr) noun –
The pleasant smell that accompanies the first rain after a dry spell.

as if I could love rain anymore than I already did. now there is a wonderful word to couple with the most wonderful act of nature.
