Luminescence. Noun– The emission of light by a substance that has not been heated.
This is, by far, my favorite word. So, of course, it’s picked first. I’m really not trying to channel Drew Barrymore when I say that I think that Luminescence is the most beautiful word in the English Language. The way it looks, the way it sounds, the way it feels in your mouth when you say it, ON TOP of having a gorgeous definition, that light can come from a cold place…I’m not going to explain the metaphor…it’s pretty obvious.
