The furthermost bird of this world sings.
The night is neat, complete and wide.
And the moon whispers,
to the ears of the flowers,
to the ears of the twigs.
In front of the stairs,
amidst the profusion of the nightly breeze,
a torch in my hand,
The lanes are calling your steps,
And your eyes are not to be the ornament of darkness!
Wash your eyes,
Wear your shoes-
Come with me!
Come until the moon’s hidden fingers warns!
Come until Time sits by your side!
Come until the night’s fragrance absorbs-
the entire weight of your limbs!
listen, listen again!
if you come this way,
there will be a wise, not far away,
who will tell you then:
“The best instant in life-
is the night you look into your eyes-
and they are wet, they are wet from-
the Incidence of Love.”
“Swedish, adding to all the awesomeness, has proven especially adept at coining new words for the new circumstances occasioned by new technologies. Below, some of the best Swedologisms I could find, via the Swedish news site The Local. We should, obviously, incorporate them into English as soon as possible.
1. Bloggbävning, n.
Definition: Literally translating to “blogquake,” the word describes the process by which a topic explodes in the blogosphere and is then picked up by more mainstream media outlets.
Used in an English sentence: “Man, that ‘ogooglebar’ thing really caused a bloggbävning today.”
2. Livslogga, v.
Definition: Literally translating to “life log,” the word refers to continually documenting one’s life in pictures.
Used in an English sentence: “I know my Instagram is full of retro-looking pictures of salads, but what can I say? It’s fun to livslogga.”
3. Ogooglebar, adj.
Definition: Literally meaning “ungoogleable,” the term is used to describe someone or something that doesn’t show up in Google results.
Used in an English sentence: “I’m going on a date tonight, but he’s totally ogooglebar! What are the odds he’s an axe murderer?”
4. Nomofob, n.
Definition: A person who feels anxious at the very thought of being separated from his or her mobile phone. (Adapted from the clunky English “no mobile phone phobia.”)
Used in an English sentence: “I’d love to go swimming, but I can’t be in the water for very long — I’m sort of a nomofob.”
Stranded Sea Lion Pups Arrive in Northern California
“Malnourished sea lion pups have started arriving in Northern California – by the vanload.
It’s a three-day, two-night trip for the weary mammalian travelers, with overnight stops in San Luis Obispo and Moss Landing. At the end of the road: The Marine Mammal Center in Sausalito, where the pups will be cared for and returned to health.”
