"Power lines, my travlin' partner on this ride. Dripping, pulling - up and down, in this sing song, their lullaby blends with the swaying train. I curl myself into this journey; folding myself up into this pocket of time. Old familiars greet me - that swing set in the back yard, the ruins of an old church covered in new birth and old - mixed with unremembered newness."

A fun find. While randomly sufing the wiktionary, I came across the pormanteaus page. A portmanteaus is defined as "A word formed which combines the meaning of two words (or, rarely, more than two words) by combining the words, usually, but not always, by adjoining the first part of one word and the last part of the other, the adjoining parts often having a common vowel."

My favorites thus far are:
& smaze.

I intend to use them in my writing very soon.

I had never heard Dykon before. I was thinking daikon - the large, white, Japanese radish? Now I have a weird image of a shapely, large, white, Japanese radish... sigh.

cool list of words there, though, I'm still working my way through them.
