Awe Ha!

One of my students last week, in attempting to describe an “aha!” moment in a book, misspelled the word as “awe ha!”

Awe ha. Revelation by awe. I like it.

Maybe we should add that term to our arsenal.

When you stumble on a good twist in a novel, and the light bulb goes on, you have an “aha!” moment.

When you stumble into the cold winter night, thinking only of getting to your cabin before freezing, and catch a glimpse of the night sky – the myriad of stars dancing in patterns of divine choreography – you stand riveted in awe ha!

Just my thoughts,

And when a child does something at once lovable and funny, that could be an AWW-ha ha.
