  • [es-pree de less-ka/-iay] (idiom) A witty remark that occurs to you too late, literally on the way down the stairs. The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations defines esprit de l'escalier as, "An untranslatable phrase, the meaning of which is that one only thinks on one's way downstairs of the smart retort one might have made in the drawing room."

Excellent post. I've been worried about the violence transpiring recently in Kenya, ordinarily a relatively stable region. Thanks for posting this for those of us able and willing to assist.

Heartbreaking.

Thanks so much Claire-- the help and additional mobilization is so appreciated!! I'm happy to field any questions if folks have them too-- [email protected]

Hope all is well in the hometown...bummer about the football though :(
