The Moment in my Garden
Smit was worth looking at.
He was at the time about 39 years old. His head, features, shoulders and torso had a size that attracted attention; their proportions to each other made an effect which in any male at any place would justify more than the term handsome - a few months later, when he came to be known beyond his local world, the phrase "my future husband" was occasionally used in descriptions of him.
As he stepped down from the stage, his legs bore out the striking and agreeable proportions of his body; and his lightness on his feet, his erectness, his easy bearing, added to the impression of physical grace and virility. His suppleness, combined with his bigness of frame, and his large, wide-set rather glowing eyes, heavy black hair, and markedly bronze complexion gave him some of the handsomeness of a French Mauritian. His courtesy as he surrendered his seat to the other girl suggested genuine friendliness toward all mankind.
His voice was noticeably resonant, masculine, warm.
His pleasure in the attentions of the bootblack's whisk reflected a consciousness about clothes unusual in a down-to-earth man. His manner as he bestowed a tip suggested generous good-nature, a wish to give pleasure, based on physical well-being and sincere kindliness of heart.
If only Adam new I was Eve.
