What does it mean?

Why did I choose this name for my second publication? Good question. Chatoyant, or chatoyance usually has to do with the color reflections in gemstone or the color variations in wood.

It is pronounced ‘shuh-toi-uhnt’

The etymology from Wikitionary says




A room to discuss aesthetics and ethics in our digital age. A place to look forward and back. Take a look at stoics and epicureans. Look at Pascal and Poincare and Peter Doig and Richard Diebenkorn.
