I love my language. I love its flexibility and endless capacity for development, and I want to change some English words to make them more descriptive.
For example, wellbeing.
Why not change the second e – after all, there are two – for an o – after all, there are none. Wellbeing can become wellboing.
Boing is an expression of spring-like energy, the spiral of life, the life-force itself rising upwards, what the Chinese call chi, or Sanskrit kundalini.
Not only can you then experience wellboing, but you can, if asked, use the word in reply to a question after your health.
"How are you, my friend?" you may hear.
"Wellboing, cheers old chum!" you might say.
