Having missed the challenge last week due to our travels, welcome to Wordle #167
6. Gnossienne n. a moment of awareness that someone you’ve known for years still has a private and mysterious inner life, and somewhere in the hallways of their personality is a door locked from the inside, a stairway leading to a wing of the house that you’ve never fully explored—an unfinished attic that will remain maddeningly unknowable to you, because ultimately neither of you has a map, or a master key, or any way of knowing exactly where you stand.
12. Puissant (powerful, mighty, potent)
He was no longer the naughty little boy from school having the ability to imitate his teachers in all their individual finery, his reactive hormones in overdrive at such a young age.
It may have been a figment of her imagination, but she’d had a puissant feeling then that much lay hidden beneath the layers of his being.
In subsequent years, she came to realise that regardless of her gnossienne, the positive gain of trust, loyalty and respect in their friendship was second to none.
