I came across a new word yesterday in a deli in Dover. It was written in large on the wall next to where I ordered my sandwich:
MERAKI (may-rah-kee) (v.) to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work.
I looked at and studied the word meraki for the full length of time I was in the deli. My phone informed me that meraki is a contemporary Greek word. I especially like the second part of the definition:
To put something of yourself into your work.
