Auspicious


Auspicious is one of those words that I don’t know the definition for, but I know what it means. I’ve learned about it from context clues, rather than looking it up (which, I did today to make sure I was right). The first thing I think whenever auspicious comes into play is “not suspicious,” as in, it is not the same word or meaning as suspicious (not that it literally means “not suspicious”).

So now I’m thinking about how those words are suspiciously and/or auspiciously similar. The origin of auspicious is here. The origin of suspicious can be found here. Bird watcher and mistrust. Well TIL.

Anyway, here’s a very pretty (imo) photo of the rooftops out the skylight this morning. Auspicious sky, suspicious snow.
