From Merriam Webster: appreciative of, responsive to, or zealous about the beautiful; also : responsive to or appreciative of what is pleasurable to the senses....from a nocturnal point of view, of course.

Green Earrings - Flash Experiment
She wore the green
earrings because she said they made her feel happier. They were a
reminder of better days, the days when she actually spoke to her family in loving tones rather than curt one-word answers of recent. Deep down
she wanted to forgive and move on, but she also held herself back as
well. She was her own worst enemy when it came to matters regarding
her emotions. She always blamed it on her traumatic family
experiences, but the truth was that she was scared. None of her friends knew the source of her behaviour except for me; that was
why I knew the green earrings would work. My mother gave them to me
when she thought I was ready, although when I took them from her, I
knew that I was not. In my mind, I was
simply going through the motions, appeasing everyone else but me. When I told her the story behind the surprise gift, she merely sighed
while her hand lazily reached out for them. I should have known
better but in the end I had done my part.
