Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in July

Here we are for some more Words…I’m so pleased that Paula is back, and recovered from her injuries!

I have chosen just three of Paula’s words

refulgent – I have chosen to ilustrate this Word to mean dazzling, and to illustrate not wit light, but with a very animated violinist, a most talented lady who dazzled us with her playing of the violin and her contortions about the stage!

nuances  Went for the obvious one, with nuances of colour. Not sure if this is gently nuanced enough, a peony in early stages of decay:

Hope you liked these.

  1. Good selection Sue 🙂

  2. i had to look up refulgent.

  3. Oh I do. Especially the weary peony.

  4. I remember that energetic violinist, Sue. And I think the Peony does work for nuance.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  5. I love that Mediterranean blue, what a beautiful calanque! Peony is perfect, Sue, and your capture is poetic, beautiful! I wish I had been there to watch and listen to that lady 😀

  6. Excellent choices. The peony is perfectly nuanced in its fading.

  7. I heard refulgent for the first time this year from a priest. I was glad to learn a new word at 72!

  8. That peony is definitely nuanced. Strange what a powerful and emotional effect viewi g it had on me.
