  • What a great word is lalochezia! It is one of those words you didn’t know was necessary until you heard it. I am reminded of reading up on the 17th Century composer, Dietrich Buxtehude, a most interesting man. The tale of his dangling marriage to his daughter before potential successors to his position as the price of preferment is especially poignant. I think his surname is well-adapted to lalocheziacal purposes. It is pronounced “BOOKS-tuh-WHO-duh.” For many years I have been encouraging people to shout, “Buxtehude!” when they strike a thumb with a hammer. Try it. I am sure you will find relief.
