Week in Seven Words #247

The restaurant feels impersonal, all the furniture spare and made of metal, but they serve rich comfort food.

When I see the number of missed calls that have accumulated in my cell phone, I'm glad I kept it on 'silent.' Otherwise, I wouldn't have had the morning to myself, to explore as I like.

Plum-colored houses with white picket fences. Cobbled lanes and sunken gardens.

Tourists licking ice cream in the salt-flavored air.

A lonely giant on a charcoal ledge looks away from the moon.

Back-to-back episodes of Shark Tank, the TV flickering in a dark room. My mind gently wiped clean of the day's emotions.

His wife strikes me as hard and bright, a woman who's difficult to get to know but worth knowing.

Very nice list of words this week.

I have always loved the word tenacious.

Thanks! Tenacious is also a quality I aspire to...

Hi Hila,

Assuaged and enchanted, two words from opposite ends of the spectrum, yet both offering that warm fuzzy feeling in their own way!

Thanks for sharing,

Glad you found those warm - they're warm memories for me certainly :) Thanks!
