Word of the Day

Propinquity

I've long liked the way it sounded (try saying it out loud), but I never knew what it meant till I finally looked it up. It's also the name of a song on an out-of-print Ian/Iain Matthews LP that I have around here somewhere. What a great voice.

(Update/clarification: It's a cover of a Michael Nesmith song.)

To my favorite wordsmith,
The sentence in question was, "The web of marriage is made by propinquity, in the day to day living, side by side, looking outward and working outward in the same direction." (The Gift From the Sea. Anne Morrow Lindbergh)
