Weird Word Wednesdays II

Fernweh - fern·weh
                 far · sore
(n.) an indefinable ache or longing to be at far away places


Every now & then one experiences that feeling... when home is not enough. When one needs to visit a place without really knowing where it is at all.
It's a yearning that most people go through at least once in their life.

I myself originating from a multi-cultural background have felt Fernweh a lot. But the outcome has never been quite what I wished for.

Have you ever felt Fernweh? Did you act on that feeling?
Which place did it lead you to? Was it satisfying or did it start all over once you barely settled?

I am curious to know.

Yours,

Tumblr Tuesday XXII

I wish I had a clutter free Desk. But unfortunately I am a chaotic mess at home. I barely manage to not mess up my Desk at work, notice the 'barely'... you can spot my Desk from the other end of the open office without knowing beforehand, that is in fact mine. :)
So let's revel in clean Desks, clutter-free & beautiful looking, shall we?
(Links are below the images, should you fancy to Like them on Tumblr and for Crediting.)






I hope you had as much fun as I had looking at this visual Deskp0rn. ;)
How does your Desk look, at home and/or at work. Are you a tidy person or rather the chaotic, messy type?

Thank you for stopping by...

Yours,

Weird Word Wednesdays

木漏れ日 - Ko·mo·re·bi
(n.) sunshine filtering through foliage


Who doesn't know that moment when you walk by a tree or are walking in a forest, and you see a sunbeam, a ray of light... almost like a touchable cylinder, or rather a cone, of light coming from between the leaves and reaching right up to the ground.
Sometimes it even looks to the eyes, as if it where solid.

How about you, do you like this moment, when Komorebi happens? How about languages?
I hope you find this as inspiring as I did.

Yours, 
 Nokta

P.S.: I was going to post something like this a few years ago, but never got around to do this.

I have always been highly interested in languages from a very, very young age. A big part of my formal education revolved around languages.
I grew up tri-lingual because of my parental heritage & my brothers teaching me english early on & later in school I sometimes got taught about 4 languages at the same time. At my college/academy I took courses for a language related job. As a child I taught myself at home a few alphabets & the basic knowledge of a few languages.
You could say I live through languages! ;)

So I hope you will enjoy this bimonthly installment as much as I do.

Tumblr Tuesday XXI

I really missed this, I guess... so I hope you'll enjoy the newest post of my Tumblr Tuesday with me! :)

Meteorologically speaking today starts the Season of Autumn (Fall) in the northern Hemisphere. I am not a Summer person & since it was very hot this Year I am very happy to Welcome Autumn... as soon as possible. (Links are below the images, should you fancy to Like them on Tumblr and of course for Crediting purposes.)





“Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” 
― Albert Camus

What about you? How do you feel about Autumn?
And by the way, which Season is your favourite.. and why?

I would love to hear from you and wish you a beautiful week.

Yours, 
 Nokta
