Glint, Gleam, Glitter

So the traditional outfit from Wednesday’s post is what I wore to the Lunar New Year celebration at work, and here’s what I wore at home – it was mostly a day of preparing, cooking, and eating food, so I wanted something simple that I could move around in, but I also wanted to show a sense of festivity too, so this embellished sweatshirt was the perfect choice. (The scarf and the shoes were literally an afterthought – I spent most of the day indoors so there was no need for them; they were lying around so I just threw them on for the pictures.)

A bit of unrelated note on the title: I was running out of titles when I suddenly remembered this bit in Terry Pratchett’s A Slip of the Keyboard, in which he talks about how some words sound exactly like their meaning. Here, I’ll bring up the quote: “I like the fortuitous onomatopoeia of words for soundless things. Gleam, glint, glitter, glisten … they all sound exactly as the light would sound if it made a noise. Glint is sharp and quick, it glints, and if an oily surface made a noise it would go glisten.” Thinking about words like that, feeling them like that, that’s the mark of a good writer.

    This is a nice, relaxed look for you Salazar. It works so well!
    And what you did for Lunar New Year sounds exactly like what I did for Thanksgiving; preparing, cooking and the best part for me, eating; my kind of holiday. 🙂

    I love the title of this post! For some reason, it really put a smile on my face, even with my usual morning grogginess. Always did love a bit of onomatopoeia to help brighten my day.
    Have a great weekend!
