My Photo

Definition

  • [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."

How is MY Frank?

I have his photo you sent with the cookies last year on my fridge.

Gawd, I heart him!

I am such a fan, Claire. And have not yet seen a photograph you took that didn't strike me as fascinating, beautiful--and this seems almost impossible given the number of images I see everyday--wholly original.
