…I’ve been thinking about this word lately. I first encountered it reading Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights in tenth grade. She was describing the book’s namesake: “Above the chimney were sundry villainous old guns, and a couple of horse-pistols: and, by way of ornament, three gaudily-painted canisters disposed along its ledge.”
Lately, a desire to use words that I find beautiful or interesting has been bubbling up. I nearly called my “Etc.” page “Sundries,” but decided against it, partly because of my often-conflicting desire to be inclusive and accessible, but mostly because I would be pushing the menu bar into another row by adding more letters. Incidentally, I saw a play by Julia Lederer at the Toronto Fringe Festival that balances these – beautiful/interesting & inclusive/accessible – so well: With Love and a Major Organ it’s called.
I’m not as skilled as Lederer, and I think my solution may be hyperlinks – and the eschewal of segues.
In all sincerity, welcome to my website! It’s a bit of an experiment for me in voice, what I choose to present, and I appreciate your being here. May you find what you are looking for!
