Imagine: You are on a tree-lined avenue. You may be walking, driving, standing, or grandly sitting. The thoroughfare may be as rustic as pepper trees edging a private road or as sophisticated as a boulevard in sweet-smelling shadow of the flowering trees.
You are on a xyst. The word was coined in Ancient Rome to describe covered garden paths and tree-lined gardens.
A word fanatic might disagree with my application of the word to our imagined tree-lined streets.
"Where is the garden?" that word fanatic might ask.
I would simply respond. "Look around you."
