[Photo Journal/ A-Z Photo Challenge] X is for Xeric

Hello. Fats here. It is Tuesday, and I am up again for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is X, so I share with you two black and white photos that illustrate my chosen word for today. This letter was quite challenging so I used a dictionary to help me.

xe•ric

/ˈzi(ə)rik,ˈzer-/
adj.: characterized by or requiring only a small amount of moisture

I believe that photography does the same as poetry in Percy Bysshe Shelley’s quote below:

“Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty from the world and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar.”

And here’s a short video of a young violinist named Xeric Tan playing “You Look the Most Beautiful Today.”

Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).
