  1. Love that word--and those periods of time. Of course, if we've got the right perspective, all of life can be that way, eh?

    1. You too, Carol! Yeah, it's getting more difficult all the time to discover a word that is unfamiliar me, and to my highly intelligent blogging buddies.^_^

  3. I've been published in Halcyon magazine twice. You'd think I'd know what the word meant!

    1. LOL! I did not this one either, Theresa. My husband has given me Halcyon Days boxes (a collectible item), but I had no idea what it meant. Congrats on your publications!
