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.

How beautiful Laura. You are so fortunate to be able to retreat to such a peaceful place. It must just melt the stresses of life away in a moment.
Have a lovely Sunday. XXXX
Magical! Wishing you a peaceful day.
And that is just fine. I think it wasn't until I reached a certain age that I came to appreciate the quiet. This is just perfect and I can feel your sentiments. Oh how I am loving this quiet moment. (Thank you for your visit and I wish you well on your journey of discovery through your recent loss). Anita

I'm so glad you took time for these photos. You captured it all.
What a wonderfully serene place. Hard to believe that places like this still exist...
Are these beaver dams? We have beavers in Poland and I find that they are nature's answer to water feature designers.
You were very lucky with the fab treasures you managed to snap up, and the little Mother-of-pearl heart is so sweet.
I have to tell you again how much I enjoy your changing headers!!
Dear Laura, God creates a beautiful place.
