#atozchallenge -W for Widdershins

As we near the end of the atozchallenge challenge, I am feeling melancholy for the early days of April where I could look ahead at the blog calendar and marvel at all the alphabetical possibilities! *sigh*

And so I bring you Widdershins. Yet another fabulous word with a specific meaning that must be brought back from obscurity.

Meaning: Counterclockwise  (like the circle on the left appears to move)

Take a gander at this website if you have a few minutes and will not be operating heavy machinery:

The word is such a wonder, it has an entire web page dedicated just to it. It has a single page. Go see:

We’re in the home stretch folks! Almost to Z! What are we supposed to do in MAY!?

My W read (a two-fer for W):

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte…  Heathcliff!!  Cathy!!  Heathcliff!!
The Water is Wide by Pat Conroy – you MUST read this book.  (adore Conroy)

My W Listen: Wrong by Depeche Mode – something about this video has always mesmerized me.
