Photo a Day, June 17

Sunshine (Through A Tree)

*Sigh* I want to use the word Gemütlichkeit to describe how this makes me feel but it’s not “in a middle class kind of way”. It’s the only word that really comes to mind that I can think of.

    Gemutlichkeit doesn’t always have to be middle-class, but it does have a social connotation, so yes, not quite right…I think I know what you mean, though. Hmmm….

    How about Zufriedenheit?
    (tzoo-FREE-den-height)
    It’s another one that’s slightly hard to translate, and it has multiple uses with different definitions, but in general,
    it means this happy contentment, fulfillment…a satisfaction in yourself and your environment.
    A sense that you have the thing(s) you have longed for, or else, that you have learned to take joy from the place you’re already in.
    It’s a nice word, and considering you wait for the sun and flipflops all winter, definitely must be feeling some Zufriedenheit lately! =)

    Lovely picture! I like zufriedenheit but gemütlichkeit also has a nice ring to it. Now how about music? As I saw this post I was listening to the opera from Mozart – Queen of the Night (I get these whims on occasion). I think it’s quite fitting though, or a little too heavy? Here is a clip,, what do you think? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OP9SX7V14Z4)
