More on nouns and verbs

16 Apr

I have an invitation from the Royal Academy requesting “the honour” of my company at a private view of the Summer Exhibition: “This invite admits one RA Friend…”, it says. How bizarre to send something out that, on the one hand, is very “correct” and rather old fashioned and, on the other, uses a verb, “invite”, instead of a noun, “invitation”.

On the subject of art ā€“ on Friday evening I went to see the Lucian Freud exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery. It is excellent. I shall go again.

A road sign in Tunisia. I loved it ā€“ even though we didn’t see any camels crossing.
