Stream of Consciousness Saturday: Jour.

Linda G Hill said :Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “jour.” Find a word containing “jour” or use it as is. Bonus points if you start or end your post with that word. Enjoy!

Jour means day in French. How much nicer it sounds in a language that is not our own. To me jour sounds exotic and special, unlike day which is ordinary every day, unlike Tous Les jours which sounds very sauve (another French word for smart or chic). Then there is sojourn , a French word a short stay.

Then there is journal, another French word for for, diary, paper, magazine. That leads to journalist, journalism, journalistic.

I could continue journey, to travel, journeyman, a workman/ tradesman. I could continue but I will not.

This is my post of the day Mon poste du jour.

    Tres bien, Willowdot. I love the word jour and had never thought of all the words that come from that little daily word. Thanks for sharing. 🙂 Merci beaucoup.

    Love your take on the prompt! I like the word “Jour” better than “Day” or the Dutch (my native language) “Dag”, too.

    Sojourn sounds lovely about now. And journal of course is therapeutic to me. Wonderful post Willow!
