what is your favorite word? sometimes we have different favorites in different languages, but me i love the words "among" and "beyond" in any language. actually don't know them in many... in german it is "zwischen" (which also means between) and "jenseits". am actually quite partial to "jenseits"... in french it is "parmi" and "au-delà"...

which is closely connected to my favorite time of day, twilight. i love the word too. in german even more "zwielicht" but also "dämmerung"... pure poesie. it is that time that stands still, the magic hour, when things are born. change. shift. unnoticed. when rocks move without anyone seeing it clearly. the corner of your eye vision only.

to my chagrin i learned the other day that there is no french equivalent. is that true? can that be true?
