    luminous times

    Hi

    Does "luminous times" mean that the times are good or maybe "luminous" is more powerful than just "good"?

    Hi GUEST2008,

    Here's one dictionary's definition of luminous. What do you think?

    Re: luminous times

    Hi

    To me it's like wonderful, extraordinary etc. times. For example if I were successful 10 years ago I would say these were my luminous times.

    take care

    Hi GUEST2008,

    Fine. Just be careful that "luminous" is what you in fact mean here, because successful does not necessarily mean luminous.
