Beauty In Words


Words move, and not just as poem or prose. Words like sartorial, dandyism, tailored and bespeak conjure up images of style and grace, of elegant times lived with purpose and passion. Times when men could be gentlemen, but also men about town, flaneurs, society men, or boulevardiers.

As much as clothes define a visual picture, so do words unsaid.

That was a beautiful interpretation, but I'd like to think, rather than using such words, the modern language has adapted and changed so you can still capture the same grace of a 'man about town' but using less characters.

Unfortunately as modern language has evolved with it's people, who happen to enjoy being lazy, the most passionate and emotional phrases have also ceased to exist, which is disappointing.
