WORD OF THE WEEK

Say it in Russian

Russian
When you find yourself seemingly satisfied with everything around you, you have entered what our Russian friends might call the state of умиротворённость (“umirotvorjonnost”). The term has its roots in the word мир, which means both “peace” and “world,” and encompasses the feeling of being at peace with yourself and the world around you.
