This week Vicki at Children's Literature Network asked for submissions of favorite words. I have so many. I am embarrassed to say I submitted none because there are long lists in my journals. Not a good reason. My tablemate at this morning's Books for Breakfast event said his would be irritated. That would go on my least favorite words list, perhaps just because it sounds like what it means. Instead, my list would include things I like for their sounds as well as for their meanings:
clandestine frosty clarity safe chocolate cardamom maple reflection mom mountain ocean cumulus cirrus chickadee fjord journey porch swing nuthatch perpetual magenta
I'll stop there.
