I don’t know about you, but I often find myself earwormed by words and phrases. Don’t get me wrong, I also get the incessant jukebox repeat of songs, too. But, sometimes, it’s actually just language. A phrase. A word.
Today, it’s “obliquity of the ecliptic”. It basically means the earth’s tilt on its axis. And yet … today, the phrase is leaving swirls of beautiful infinity in my brain. It feels peach-ripe with possibility and allure. All I want to do is stare at it, run it around my tongue and through my teeth, hold its weighty, surprising grace in all of my conversations.
The obliquity of the ecliptic. It feels pregnant, a story waiting to be born, a world waiting to be tapped and pulled into existence.
Perhaps I should get started on that.
