Here’s my homework, and yours if you choose it, for the summer holidays.  To ‘create a word, only one, for the converging perception of the cowbells announcing day’s end and the sunset in the distance’.

Answers on a postcard, or an email, to beatrice(at)www.writingredux.com.   The winning word or words will be featured here, and if I come up with one myself, I won’t cheat and award myself first prize. If you create your word in a language other than English, kindly include an approximate translation.

‘The world of appearances is complicated, and language has only verbalized a minuscule part of its potential, indefatigable combinations.  Why not create a word, only one, for the converging perception of the cowbells announcing day’s end and the sunset in the distance?’
