A.Word.A.Daywith Anu Garg
MEANING:adjective: 1. Cloudy, misty, or foggy. 2. Vague or obscure.
ETYMOLOGY:From Latin nubilosus (cloudy), from nubes (cloud).
USAGE:"Antonioni is probably best known for Blow-Up, a nubilous 1966 drama set in swinging London about a fashion photographer who comes to believe that a photograph he took of two lovers in a public park also shows, hidden in the background, evidence of a murder."
Rick Lyman; Michelangelo Antonioni, Subversive Filmmaker; International Herald Tribune (Paris, France); August 1, 2007.
"All of which nubilous musing serves little purpose, except to show that
cloud-gazing, as a way of passing time, has appealed to all humanity since
the earliest of times."
A THOUGHT FOR TODAY:A time will come when a politician who has wilfully made war and promoted international dissension will be as sure of the dock and much surer of the noose than a private homicide. It is not reasonable that those who gamble with men's lives should not stake their own. -H.G. Wells, writer (1866-1946)
