Word of the Week: Halcyon
The word of the week is: Halcyon
1. calm; peaceful; tranquil (halcyon weather)
2. rich; wealthy; prosperous (halcyon times of peace)
3. happy; joyful; carefree (halcyon days of youth)
4. of or pertaining to the halcyon or kingfisher.
When I think of calm and peaceful, I envision sitting on the beach watching the beautiful sunset or sunrise and listening to the waves crash onto shore. The picture for this post was taken in Naples, FL during my mini vacation with my boyfriend last August. The noun defintion of halcyon (the mythical bird and kingfisher) also relates to the ocean which also makes this picture so fitting. May your day today be very halcyon! Here are a couple more pictures of the beach from that same trip below.
