Here I am at BrewNSpew Cafe where some the chatter is about writing a poem using the word quiddity.  First I ever heard of the word. Good thing Eugenia included the definition;

quiddity (noun) – 1) the real nature of a thing; the essence 2) a petty or trifling distinction; quibble. Synonyms – essence, heart and soul, inwardness, nitty-gritty, pith, substance, haecceity.

Now that I know what it means…here goes.


Wandering through life

  1. Patricia, I created a little poem, Am I Weird? using this word. I didn’t think I’d come up with anything with such an odd sounding word but then it came to me just like that! I don’t think we have wander through life too far to find quiddities in oneself or others, they are all around us if we just look for them. 🙂

    1. It’s true our quiddities are no far off. I think some of mine seem so normal to me that I can’t qualify them as quiddities
