|"Since love grows within you,|
so beauty grows.
For love is the beauty of the soul."
These days we have to find new ways to celebrate the special moments of life. The groom thought this wedding was perfect, for he is an introvert who dreaded the speech, the large gathering, and the dance in front of so many people. Instead, a quiet dinner with family, a simple ceremony with the same, and this short appearance to many who wished them well.
|"Develop interest in life as you see it; in people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich|
simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls, and interesting people.
|"I lived in solitude in the country and noticed how the monotony of a quiet life|
stimulates the creative mind."
|"...and work at your pattern - it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that...|
one stitch at a time, taken patiently."
Oliver Wendell Holmes
|"The essential elements of the romantic spirit are curiosity and the love of beauty."|
|"Arranging a bowl of flowers in the morning can give a sense of|
quiet in a crowded day - like writing a poem or saying a prayer."
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
|"The perfume of the lilacs came in little puffs on the crystal air."|
L. M. Montgomery
I'm feeling very content this sunny and windy afternoon. I made a big dent in the marking for my classes (marking online takes me more time than on paper). I'm soon heading to the kitchen to prepare dinner and bake some brownies. This evening I believe I'll start another book. What will it be? Choosing is half the fun!
I'd love to hear what you've been up to lately.
