Has all this rain in the last month put you in a melancholy mood? Well, I think that I have been affected by the dark and cloudy skies for too long now.....My friend Carole did a post on sunny yellow flowers this week and also one on bright red poppies.....it spurred me on to...SNAP out of it!
Just what I needed! A riot of color! A burst of sunshine!.... Now if only the sunshine will stay with us a while.... All these beauties were for sale outside the market at the lake this past weekend..... Hope the coming weekend is sunny and bright wherever you happen to be!
To live content with small means.... To seek elegance rather than luxury, and refinement rather than fashion.... To be worthy, not respectable, and wealthy, not rich.... To study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly.... To listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart.... To bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasions, hurry never.... In a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common.... ...........this is to be my symphony.
Thank you to all the kindred spirits and kind souls who take the time to leave a comment......Your support and encouragement are deeply appreciated.....I read each and every message and as time allows, do my best to reply.
