INSOUCIANT, HALCYON, & GLAMPING
I came across the words insouciant, halcyon, and glamping during routine reading.
Insouciant is an adjective meaning unconcerned, undisturbed; carefree and nonchalant, derived from the French words in- (not) and souciant (worrying). Pronounced ( in-su see – ent)
Halcyon is also an adjective defined as a period of time in the past that was idyllically happy and peaceful. It’s three syllables, hal-cy-on are pronounced halsēən
Glamping, glamorous camping, is a new style of camping for persons who want the outdoors experience but who do not want to sacrifice the comforts of high-end living. It’s a kind of pretend roughing it in the woods. The term first showed up in the United States around 2007 and is now mainstream.
USING INSOUCIANT, HALCYON, & GLAMPING IN A SENTENCE
My Insouciant cousin lay peacefully by the stream, reminiscing about her great aunt Margaret’s halcyon days, all the while glamping at Savage River Lodge in Frostberg, Maryland.
I invite you to try to use these three words in your own sentence. Share your efforts in the comment box below. Thanks!
