Limerence

In 1977, psychologist Dorothy Tennov coined the term "limerence" to explain the cognitive and emotional state of being involuntarily infatuated or obsessed with another person. Though sometimes conflated with a "crush," limerence is much more intense. A limerent person is consumed with thoughts of the object of their affection, is intensely fearful of rejection, and swings between extreme joy and despair depending on whether feelings are reciprocated. How long can a limerent reaction last? More... Discuss

He designed the seaplane as a troop and materiel transport for the US War Department and manufactured it almost entirely from wood because of wartime restrictions on the use of aluminum.

It would be better to give up the notion of writing until you are better prepared ... You must not become a mere peddler of words. The thing to learn is to know what people are thinking about, not what they say.

Today's Holiday

Día de los Muertos

Día de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead, is a national holiday in Mexico and is observed in Hispanic communities throughout the U.S. Long before sunrise, people stream into the cemeteries laden with candles, flowers, and food that is often shaped and decorated to resemble the symbols of death. Children eat tiny chocolate hearses, sugar funeral wreaths, and candy skulls and coffins. But the atmosphere is festive. In many homes, people set up ofrendas, or altars, to the departed. These are decked with candles, special foods, and whatever the dead enjoyed when they were alive. More... Discuss
