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."

Beautiful shots, Claire! I was missing seeing photos from you in my Flickr contacts, so I came over to your blog the other day to see what was up. I'm so glad you're posting photos again!

Gorgeous photos! I often visit your site too and rarely comment. Thanks for your kind note recently on Whipped :) It meant a lot.
