January 18th- Oneiric

Sorry haha, I posted this to my personal journal by accident.

oneiric \oh-NY-rik\, adjective

Definition:
Of, pertaining to, or suggestive of dreams; dreamy.

Example:
Her large images, which are cloaked in an elegant oneiric mist, transport the viewer to an ideal world where bodies seem to have become weightless ghosts of themselves.
-- Simona Vendrame, "Nature and the solitary self, translated by Jacqueline Smith", Temaceleste

Origin:
Oneiric comes from Greek oneiros, "dream."
