Today’s new word is CWTCH: (n) Welsh, pronounced “kutch”
I was first introduced to this word by my follow blogger, now soul sister Ananda Amenet . I imagine she can give an amazing CWTCH, one that says a thousand words without a word being spoken. You know what I’m talking about and a hug can do all that.
CWTCH stands for a hug, a cuddle or snuggle. It creates a private, safe place in two people’s heart. It is snuggling and cuddling, loving, protecting, and safeguarding all rolled into one.
CWTCH has no literal English translation, but is an emotionally significant embrace and an intrinsically Welsh word that evokes a sense of home. It reminds of Hygge, a danish word, similar and yet different, creating that cosines and a sense of well being one gets when they feel at home. At home in their country or at home in the arms of someone they love.
