Keyframe

  • A moment that seemed innocuous at the time but ended up marking a diversion into a strange new era of your life.

  • Set in motion not by a series of jolting epiphanies but by tiny imperceptible differences between one ordinary day and the next, until entire years of your memory can be compressed into a handful of indelible images.

  • It prevents you from rewinding the past, but allows you to move forward without endless buffering.

  • Coined in 2012 by John Koenig in The Dictionary of Obscure Sorrows, a project, to create a compendium of invented words for every emotion we might all experience but don’t yet have a word for.
