Did you visit WordSalad yesterday and discover 12 Beautiful Words You've Never Encountered?

Pretty Cool, huh?

If you did, what did you think of:

"3. moledro

n. a feeling of resonant connection with an author or artist you’ll never meet, who may have lived centuries ago and thousands of miles away but can still get inside your head and leave behind morsels of their experience, like the little piles of stones left by hikers that mark a hidden path through unfamiliar territory."

Pretty juicy definition. My life's goal is to write a story or a book that will inspire moledro in others.
(Wow, that felt like 5th grade English; having to write a sentence using the vocabulary words of the week.)

Have you read books that have gotten inside your head? Can you spot the path the author was taking?
Is there a tome out there that has caused you to smell the trees and earth in the setting, or maybe smell and see the exhaust of a city bus?

When I look around my house, see my hundreds of books stacked double wide in bookshelves in every room, I finally really that my drug of choice is moledro!  Can't get enough.

Finished reading Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George recently. Incredible dose of moledro! I could feel the air, the river's current. I could taste the food, smell the flowers and spices.

What books have you read, or what blog do you read, where you connect with the author in a special way?

  1. I often feel a connection to a book or piece of art but I don't necessarily interpret that as a connection with the author or artist. I guess I interact with the product in its own right. Perhaps I should rethink that?


Comment Please but Play Nice!
