frisson

Postby Klimt » Mon Nov 01, 2010 11:14 am

A moment of intense excitement; a shudder:

The story's ending arouses a frisson of terror.
Whoever wants to know something about me - as an artist which alone is significant - they should look attentively at my pictures and there seek to recognise what I am and what I want.

This one's long been one of my favorite words. I should make a list, but then again coming across them serendipitously (another favorite) is most gratifying.

I just made my first batch of caramels for this season, and the tiny taste I granted myself provided a wondrous frisson of palatal pleasure.
Life is like playing chess with chessmen who each have thoughts and feelings and motives of their own.
