UNTRANSLATABLE / “solidune”

part of speech

noun

definition

That feeling when you find yourself atop a sand dune in the middle of a desert and you experience a moment of immense solitude, brought on in part by the realization of how small humans really are in the midst of so many billions of grains of sand.

Similar to: that feeling of awe when you gaze up at a sky full of stars.

Usage

“My first experience of solidune was when I rode into the Sahara Desert on camelback and sat down for a moment to watch the sun set.”
