Today’s “Word of the Day” is “fallow” and it is an adjective meaning “inactive, dormant, slow-moving, stagnant, depressed, unfruitful, unproductive“.
Example Sentence: So, I am trying to bring myself back. It was during this pandemic that I became aware of the concept of “wintering”, via Katherine May’s fortuitously (fortunately) timed book of the same name, about the power of rest and retreat in difficult times. It’s about accepting the fallow periods of life, and if any year has been a fallow year, it’s 2020.
