I totally ignored I, J, K, L, and poor M. That happens when attempting to do the A to Z Blogging challenge without really a lot of planning. I knew better. Yes, I did. What’s my excuse? A case of weltschmerz (pronounced velt-ˌshmerts).
What the flippity-flip-flip is that?
Well…a mood of sentimental sadness. In my case for no good reason I was afflicted, but after a few days of healthy eating, hugs from my significant other, prayer, writing, and some ibuprofen, I am much better. Now I feel like Annie. God is good!
Disclaimer: It’s not because I am fluent in German nor schooled in psychology that I am familiar with weltschmerz. While reading Sidney Chambers and The Shadow of Death (The Grantchester Mysteries Book 1), I came across the term. I said to myself, “Well, la-di-da, I do believe I have been bitten on the tookus by this malady on several occasions.”
