A daily word, its definition, and an example of its usage.

The word limpid has appeared in 25 New York Times articles in the past year, including on Dec. 6 in the art review “Desire and Prudery, Wrestling to a Draw” by Ken Johnson:

Danish Impressionism seems directed more to an ideology of nature as healthful and beneficent. In Georg Harald Slott-Moller's "Summer Day" (1888), one of the show's biggest and most vivid paintings, two woman in sunbonnets lift their voluminous skirts over the limpid, ankle-deep seawater they're delightedly wading in. The details are simplified and volumes flattened, while the expansive, luminous space is breathtaking. But like the paintings of John Singer Sargent, the work is oppressively genteel, a far cry from Manet's shocker "Le Dejeuner sur l'Herbe."

"Politicians can improve the world but only bit by bit. Try something small, that's easily reversed. If it works, scale it up. If not, you drop it"
Simon Kuper
