Wordy Wednesday


gossamer \GAH-suh-mer\ adj. extremely light, delicate, or tenuous


Summer dresses, the beach, cool breezes, cotton button downs, crystal chandeliers. Granted, this word is traditionally ascribed to the likes of a spiders workmanship in his cobweb, but it is not limited to that. Gossamer can also refer to the fabrication of a dress, typically a wedding gown. Dictionary.com gave the example, “Except for a few gossamer clouds, the sky was clear and blue.” It also reminded me of The Great Gatsby, when Nick met Daisy for the first time and the curtains tenderly swept around the room from the light breeze.

Otherwise, it made me reminisce about walking the beach at twilight whilst being caressed by the salty air.
