This morning we’re revisiting an old friend - The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, by the wonderful John Koenig. Where other languages have beautifully simple words to describe rich, complex feelings, the English language is full of gaps (lacunas, if you’re a long time Lost Words follower). The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows seeks to remedy this. I read this morning that John is working on a book version, so I’ll keep an eye out for that and update you all in time.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Today’s entry is “vellichor” a word which denotes “the strange wistfulness of old bookshops.”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
There's something so captivating about these magical places, with their cluttered rooms piled high with more books than you could ever read in a lifetime. Books full of stories of people who have long since passed, or people that never were. Thoughts preserved on pages are as fresh as the day they were written, ready to be pondered upon once more, decades and decades later.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
You while away the hours with ease, carefully perusing the shelves of this tumbledown treasure trove. The room’s musty smell and the disorganised beauty stir a swirl of nostalgia for a time you never knew, but feel connected to, as if time itself created this place - just for you.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
