    The ambiguity in 'tones' is very well exploited. I just have to watch newscasts from as recently as the 80s to notice how rapidly the delivery changes with the years. Or observe how the way married folk speak to each other changes with time and familiarity. Very evocative.

    remembering my grandparents speaking like that–in sepia tones.

    Poignant for me.

    Such an understated verse. Beautifully evocative the sabi mood can be savoured repeatedly.
