Words you might enjoy(e): Installment IV

I haven't blogged about a word in quite some time. I was reading a book today that I haven't read in ages and I came across the word widdershins.

Widdershins basically means to take a course opposite the apparent motion of the sun (Northern Hemisphere). Also, it can refer to circling an object counter-clockwise. You can think of widdershins as the opposite direction as usual.
