“The items people own reveal something about the owners. Every quaint item that a person selects to surround themselves with has a basic quiddity, the essence, or inherent nature of things. As a people, we assign a value meaning not only to the things that we presently possess, but also to the items destined for one generation to hand down to the next generation.” ―
Word of the week – quiddity (noun) – 1) the real nature of a thing; the essence 2) a petty or trifling distinction; quibble. Synonyms – essence, heart and soul, inwardness, nitty-gritty, pith, substance, haecceity.
our nature or quiddity oft confused
methinks oddity reveals the truth
but unspoken words we question
concerns run endless circles
purpose without purpose
and heart and soul
