There is something about scintilla that seems to lend itself to poetry and descriptive writing. To whisper in a gentle hush, without even a scintilla of doubt, how much you love another…ah, how perfectly romantic! To feel that glimmer, that fleeting spark of a remembered moment, that second of time that can give you goosebumps, yet you don’t know quite why – that’s scintilla. Scintilla can be all those tiny moments, feels and occurrences that help make each and everyday magical. It’s the glimmer of a new idea, the spark of a new connection, the sweet, fleeting flash of pure, wonderful delight.
What do you think of the word scintilla?
