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
