Supermundane

Doesn't supermundane sound soooo boring? Actually it means out of this world or superior to earthly things. And that makes it jolly difficult to illustrate.

This is Arbroath Abbey. We enjoyed our visit there very much - definitely closer to super than to mundane.

It does sound like an oxymoron.

What a great word! Knowing the meaning makes its origins clear, but I'd have fallen into the trap of your first thought.

I thought "supermundane" was an ultra boring superhero.

I love a ruined abbey - have you been to the one in Melrose, Patsy?

It amazes me how those old walls keep standing. Never mundane but could be supermundane.

Hi Patsy,

Thanks for posting about this today...I have an upcoming trip to UK so I'm making notes!

Patsy said...

We do, Mac.

I know - I'm sure it must have caught someone out.

Patsy said...

Yes, once we know what it means, it does make sense.

Patsy said...

They'd be fun to write!

Patsy said...

Not yet, Kate. We're back up to Scotland this year, so we might visit then. Haven't planned all our route yet.

They were built to last, Oscar!

Oh, when and where are you visiting, Nas?
