the WORLD… their WORLD… the WORLD.. world world, world? world! world. wow that word looks funny. world.Suddenly my brain shifted into what I can only call poetry mode. Words and phrases similar to the word, "world" began surfacing and swimming around in my mind. After about twenty minutes, I replied to her tweet with:
@ednapiranha may your weird wonder ward our wired world for we were old and wandered and whirled from the word of the one door.I immediately went to bed and began a night woven with those words. They were in my dreams. I'd wake up with chants in my head, "world - we're old" and "wonder - one door". It haunted me all night long and now continues into the next day.
Ten years ago, a dear friend, since deceased, came up with a new word, ospid, that perfectly describes what I was experiencing.
I look forward to the moment, hopefully later today, when this is no longer an ospid.
- n, an object which, for a brief period after its creation, intensely fascinates its creator. Once the fascination is over, the object is no longer an ospid.
