excrescence

(noun) Something that bulges out or is protuberant or projects from its surroundings.

extrusion, gibbosity, hump, jut, bulge, protrusion, protuberance, swelling, bump, prominence

A roof, Richard contended, was a part of the edifice that the ancients always endeavored to conceal, it being an excrescence in architecture that was only to be tolerated on account of its usefulness.


This is a new word for me, and it seems it could be quite useful particularly when discussing architecture as in the quote above.

Nice sentiment, I believe that it is one's own interests that define how interesting the world is. That and the ability to develop and maintain those interests

What is worth having.....
When your hard work bears fruit, the sense of self-worth is one of the sweetest and most worth having in my view.
