Word of the (Typhoon 8) day
I found the following Inuktit word in John Julius Norwich's 2001 book, A Christmas Cracker. Looking out of my window, it gives a new dimension to the outside world.
Tartitartuq: The sea has dark moving patches, or shadows, playing over it; when sky and sea are story, black shadows ripple and play over the chop of the sea.
Such a delicate observation; a poem in one word.
