Have you ever desired to be in two places at once?
If it were physically possible, people would be able to experience much more of our vast universe before their lives were over.
Sadly, during our lifetime, we only get to experience a fraction of all the “fantasies that stay dormant” inside our minds.
This is because we are “stuck in only one body, in only one place at a time.”
Written by John Koenig, The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows addresses what onism is, and why our souls long for the unknown.
The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows is a compendium of invented words written by John Koenig. Each original definition aims to fill a hole in the language—to give a name to emotions we all might experience but don’t yet have a word for.
The author’s mission is to capture the aches, demons, vibes, joys and urges that roam the wilderness of the psychological interior. Each sorrow is bagged, tagged and tranquilized, then released gently back into the subconscious.
