Hi Everyone!

Nuance is great in this one don’t you think?

No! No! This one with it’s different lines of color will be the best!

You both need to brush up on your artwork. This one is the one. When the soft lights are on you will be able to picture yourself right there with Alice and Absalom. The nunce is perfect.

Have a great day! Hope

Smitten

 

Hi Everyone!

Have you ever been smitten? For one thing I dragged out my paper dictionary The New Merriam-Webster with a copyright of 1989 to see what smitten is all about.

Are pages yellow you ask? Yes they are!

Here’s the meaning of smite – 1989 doesn’t even have smitten – says to strike heavy, to affect as a heavy blow. Yikes! I thought it meant more like the statements below.

Now at Merriam-Webster website it has –
deeply affected with or struck by strong feelings of attraction, affection, or infatuation.

Now The Free Dictionary one definition has –
to afflict or attack with deadly or disastrous effect: smitten by polio.
to affect mentally, morally, or emotionally with a strong and sudden feeling: They were smitten with terror.

to impress favorably; enamor:  he was smitten by her charms

Have you been smitten lately?

Have a great day! Hope

Okay “The Free Dictionary says “Difficult to understand or interpret; impenetrable” or
