Word Of The Week - Ephemeral


Today I'd like you to get active with your vocab zhushing. 
I'm going to ask you to do three things for 'Word Of The Week':

#1 Watch the following video - it takes about 5 minutes and is totally worth the investment.

#2 Think of another word besides ephemeral to describe what you see.

#3 Include ephemeral in one of your posts and link back to this one.



Of course ephemeral has a poignant connection with my blog.
How? Well I have a delicate bloom and butterfly for my logo - both truly ephemeral beauties.

Now I can't wait to read your responses and your extra words to describe this movie.
Mine? Astounding!

Happy day!

  2. I think it was astonishlingly symmetrical, to be savioured and also quite simple. Not knowing the history of the piece, I found it quite inspiring to see this need, this determination, this drive in someone. Quite thought provoking. Thank you sweet Felicity.

    1. You've elucidated something that I couldn't quite put my finger on - the drive, the determination.

      I'm heading off to the beach today, I wonder what kind of lines I'll draw in the sand.

  3. Wonderfully meditative! It reminds me of Buddhist sand art. But I have to wonder how he can draw circles like that...I can hardly do it on paper.

    1. I know Michael, I wondered that too.
      His circles are so symmetrical, repeatedly.
      The Buddhist sand art connection isn't one I'd made, but now you mention it - yes!

      Happy day!

  4. Like words of songs on the radio, I'm surprised by this definition :) I dont think I could be trusted to use this word through the week - I'm sure I'd morph the meaning as I'd go along :)

    1. You too Kellie, I hope that the beauty that is Sydney at Easter is more than ephemeral.

  7. Driven, determined, possibly demented!!

    1. I think you'd definitely have to have an element of all three 'D's to do something like that - for sure.
      The precision really struck me - it would be meditative too, particularly with the lull of the ocean as your accompanying melody.

  10. Also, I want to say that I love this word! (It's on my blog address!) Understanding the ephemerality of life truly helps us live each and every moment of our lives to the fullest... Ephemeral is a beautiful word...
