Hiraeth

Hiraeth.

Who knew it’s a thing? Maybe Ruby did. Yes, I’m quite certain she did. Does.

Hiraeth.

A longing for a home you can’t return to, or one that was never yours. not necessarily a house, but a homely feeling such as love.

Hiraeth.

I am sometimes consumed by Hiraeth.

I like going places: out West, west of the West, and East. North, south, I go by train, plane, automobile, horseback. Whatever.

  1. I recently came across this word myself, though I can’t recall the context. Though I didn’t know what it was, like you it’s consumed me the last couple of years.

  2. I came across this word recently myself for the first time. It hit me right between the eyes for I’ve also been feeling it for quite some time. I just didn’t know what it was called.
