Beautiful words everywhere – or May the Tube never change

I find beautiful words everywhere – accidental, historical and just giving me pause to think about the wonder of words.

Walking through a wet Kings Cross, the tannoy announces ‘due to today’s inclement weather the surfaces are slippery, please take care.’

Who uses ‘inclement’?  It means merciless as well as stormy weather, and there’s that sense of a chill to the bone from the word – then the voice soothes you with care, they care despite the pitiless weather.

 

 

 

 

And that care continues – ‘take care while alighting.’

I feel like I’m floating off the bus.
