Every weekend I participate in David Abrams’s “#SundaySentence” project, sharing the best sentence I’ve read during the past week, “out of context and without commentary.”

What can one say except that the sky was this lovely, soft, heavy gray-violet over the buildings in the dusk, and that snow flurries were coming down, the flakes melting before they even touched anything, not even collecting on your sleeve?

Against a plain background, the hashtag #SundaySentence appears.

    Thanks for sharing this, Erika. I like how, in her flash piece, Brennan not only writes beautifully about what she sees, but how impossible it can seem to capture those gorgeous moments in nature or in this case, in Paris, in writing.

      I find that she does this so often in her Substack, which, as a paying subscriber, I’ve just been given three (short-term) gift subscriptions to bestow. Would you like one?

        Oh my gosh, Erika! You are an angel in my writing life every day! I would definitely like a gift subscription!
