Twilight fishing with Mr. Dot & some of the family a few days ago, on the beach below my parents' summer home (now just my mom's: although my father died seven summers ago, we still think of it as my father's beach). My niece Becky reminds me so much of my sister, her mom, at her age (13). She's so sweet. Same exact hair, too.
Winding down, only five precious days til we leave, so I'm going to go join him (Mr. D) down on the same very beach, on the Long Island Sound, where he's fishing.
It's a very quiet Thursday morning. So grateful to each of you who are visiting, and commenting - Roz, Jazmine, Carrott, you all know who you are. Anonymous aka Louisa: I'm wondering if perhaps you're the same wise Anonymous who has taught me things I didn't know in the past? Your explanation that Chanel's limited edition Vague nail varnish, for example, translates as Wave in English, got me thinking. What about Sand? Google translate says it's Sable, which in my mind is a darker colour, but perhaps I'm thinking of a dark brown Sable coat. If you translate Sable back into English, it's also Grit, Grittiness, or Fettle (?).
Vague, on the other hand, besides wave, also means Tide, Vagueness, Surge, UPsurge, Outbreak, Dimness, Haziness, Inkling, Vague, Vacant, Dim, Indefinite, Undefinied, Hazy, Indistinct, Remote, Obscure, Shadowy, Indeterminate, Sketchy, Formless, Lax, Shady, Sloppy, Incomprehensible, Inscrutable, or Indistinguishable.
Thinking ahead to how I shall dress come fall. I want to bring the colours of the Dominican Republic into my wintry English life. I shall show you more, over time. Bright almost neon colours mixing with the shades of brown and camel and nude and yes, SAND, or SABLE. British Vogue's August edition - which I had in the DR - showed some really sophisticated mixes of bright wacky colours, I like that. I also like shades that are hazy, dim, vague, indeterminate, indistinct and sketchy. The light out here on the Fork today is hazy, and I'm wearing mostly White (Blanc), pale Sand, and the palest Sky Blue faded old button down men's shirt. Or, Ciel Blue, en français.
Going down to the Sound. Où êtes-vous aujourd'hui?
