Why I love this word:
On one beautiful night in Los Angeles, my best friend and I went on an adventure. We needed to get out of our apartments to enjoy the city life and to clear our minds for a bit. After our small liberty, and after deciding to go home, we got distracted by a very handsome and entrancing young man on the train. We were so intrigued by the way he carried himself that we began to build a personality for him. This wild imagination of ours led us to follow him and we ended up in a beautiful town and to meeting even more beautiful people. It was because of this strangers inquisitive nature and character that caught our attention and that has stuck with us all this time. This young man didn't say a word to us. He didn't as so much even glance in our direction. But we fell in love with his aura. That night, I thought to myself 'what makes a person this way?' I questioned what it was about him that made me so interested, and how I can be the same way towards others in the world.
