Dancing Echoes

Beats Stumbling Around in Silence




There is a beauty
In a life well lived
Senescent patina

Author: Dancing Echoes

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  2. Yeah, I love me some sciencey words: http://i.word.com/idictionary/senescence. I actually try to look up, learn and use new words all the time. Especially if they are really neat.

  3. Cool, thanks for the link. 😉
    I’m going to use “senescent” (incorrectly) at special occasions, maybe dinner at the embassy.
    “I say, this ’64 Chablis is a bit senescent, what?”
