A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
The artist Leah Palmer Preiss is a national treasure. She calls herself an artist, but alchemist would be more like it. I gave her a few words earlier this year. She went to her studio and turned these words, plus some paint, into works of magic. We’ll see five such words this week.
Now, after enjoying this week if you can’t wait till the next year, check out her illustrations from previous years.
You can reach her at (curiouser at mindspring.com).
noun: The young of an animal, especially of a sheep or a goat.

“In residence therein is a handsome chestnut colt the Lewises bought for $200,000 as a yeanling. His name is Charismatic.”
