there is the challenge described:
In his absorbing web series http://www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows.com/ , writer and editor #JohnKoenig gives names to deep longings and vague feelings in the form of brief, beautiful videos. Subtitled "For lack of a better world". Koenig tries to create a better world by calling attention to sensations that made you think, "maybe it's just me, but…"
His ' The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows' is a compendium of #InventedWords. Each original word and its definition aims to fill a hole in the language - to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don't yet have a word for.
The author has a ferocious curiosity about the art and science of being human, especially language, mythology, poetry, and the natural world. His dictionary has been acclaimed by New York Magazine, Washington Post Express, author John Green, blogger Jason Kottke, and the guys from Radiolab Podcast. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=26JK_Xw_laQ
we used many Koenig's amazing words before as the inspirational key words for our magazines in the past.
the next key word is
The surge of energy upon catching a glance from someone you like — a thrill that starts in your stomach, arcs up through your lungs and flashes into a spontaneous smile—which scrambles your ungrounded circuits and tempts you to chase that feeling with a kite and a key.
I somehow tend to connect this key word to the LGBT theme hatching up lots of art through these theme feeling as a cute rainbow-ed chic seeing a new sunny world.
on the best concept / style photograph or set of photographs that will fit into the category "ECSTATIC SHOCK" with the focus on LGBT theme and all its expressions in any art form.
We publish the best photos in AUGUST issue 2020 of MARQUIS FASHION MAGAZINE.
