Tendership

Tendership is a word I made up myself. It describes a tender friendship that brings soulful wellness. I recently read a BBC article a friend shared on Facebook about words taken from other countries that have no direct English equivalent, but represent very precise emotions that are neglected in our language.

It began as a love affair with Spaghetti Westerns, then turned into a serious and lasting romance when I traveled to Vail, Colorado in 2015… sunshine, mountain air, wide open spaces and beautiful faces!

Sweet As Tupelo Honey & Good As Gold

Light gray with a touch of yellow… that’s the color that surrounds you after a hurricane visits, then leaves.
