I am a lawyer from the midwest. I believe good writing is a lost art, and the nuances of words make all the difference. A new word is a little gift of new meaning or feeling.
My Word Lists
A word of nuanced, intangible calm. A favorite of my law professor and mentor as well.

Least Favorite Word:
Too childish, even for adults speaking to children. I'm no prude, but can't we just be a touch less descriptive and say "restroom" or "bathroom"? I can't believe the words "enamored" are on the string????
