Elegance is not only a visual concept but also aural. Elegant sounding words have as much effect on one’s spirit as seeing a beautiful object or person, Indeed, elegant words can conjure in one’s mind images far finer than those of the eye.
Take, for example, the word Décolletage.
Pronounced: deh – coll – et – ahj
Yes, I know, it is French, but it is very much a part of our English language now and a much more alluring and enchanting word than its more prosaic alternative of Cleavage.
And it gave me a wonderful opportunity to incorporate this photograph into the website.
