I wonder about a word that means “having shed an unwanted burden” or the loss of a heavy weight you’ve been carrying around. I’ve been trying to title a poem that expresses that feeling and don’t have any good words or short phrases.
I’ve been checking out your archive - this is fantastic!
I did a quick look out on the blogosphere and the only thing I found is “Xernia” from Greek meaning to not be a burden to one’s host. I will certainly keep an eye out for something to that effect! I feel like it would definitely have one out there.
Glad you’re enjoying the blog!
