2010's New Words

"Epiphany" was one of five religious terms to challenge the readers in a magazine's Language Game page for the end of the year. This weekend we had a beautiful celebration of the Christian Epiphany which always includes songs we only sing on this occasion...in full voice. After all, they have to last 12 months!

The "words of the year" in this article included: cyberchondriac, shamnesia, an internot, a thinterval, dietribe, manscara, nostralgia, Godcasting and swipeout.

We had our first big melt this weekend, two days in the 50s! Here's what it did to our lakefront...lots of dunes and open water, and gorgeous ice-sculpted waves. Click on them to enlarge.
