Iktsuarpok (Inuit): The frustration of waiting for someone to turn up.
Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan): A wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who both desire to initiate something but are both reluctant to start.
Aware (Japanese): The bittersweetness of a brief and fading moment of transcendent beauty.
The reluctance on a person’s part to let go of an illusion.
By ghosts of past and present.
This is my 400th post on this blog.
A nice round number.
