When I was in school, I found on the last page of my Dictionary what I thought was the most beautiful word ~ “Zinnia”.
It’s a type of flower, I learnt.
I’d always go back to look at the word, as if I was afraid it wasn’t real & disappear, or something! Zinnia.... Zinnia.... Zinnia.... Zinnia-na.
ZiNNiANA (pronounced: Zinni-yah-nah) was gonna be the name of my future daughter, I decided.
Just a backstory of how I named the daughter I never had.
