It has been a while since I’ve written a WoTD post, but I’m going to try to keep at it from now on. The first I think I’ve heard of the word ‘chimera’ was in a Harry Potter book, many of us know it as a mythical creature but I wasn’t aware of its second meaning.
- (in Greek mythology) a female monster with a lion’s head, a goat’s body and a snake’s tail.
- an unrealistic hope or dream.
