"When you allow yourself to be beautiful, it is like allowing yourself to be a rare purple violet with dew clinging to its leaves — so beautiful that it makes you pause in the middle of your hectic life and do a double take. It dazzles you out of your mind and, for a brief moment, you are in awe of being alive."
- Kimberly Pine

  1. have breath! That is beauty in itself! And to take it a step further, to LIVE and LOVE makes one shine. It is so good to see a post from you my dear friend, in the middle of this busy week/month! What an appropriate color to choose - violet/purple. I always associate this with royalty, and that, we are.

    I hope to see you soon. Anita

  6. Irina! I am on the run AGAIN!!!!! Thank you for coming today to visit and yes, I stopped the poetry blog. I need to write my poetry and keep it "private" only because it's so bad that I need to work on it and let it sit before I share it, and even then, I'm just going to share it with the poetry group. BUT thank you for looking for it. That's kind. LOVE YOU! Anita

    1. Good morning precious sister!

      Thank you for coming to visit my post and for always having such a supportive spirit, no matter where MY spirit is taking me. It's been a wonderful but a sort of whirlwind journey trying to find my voice, but I think I've found what I've been looking for. However, I could never even think of going "there" without any of YOU - friends that are the reason why I blog. Have a super day, Anita

  7. Irina,
    Oh I love this quote, and do you know that my favorite color is PURPLE? It is a striking, beautiful, magical color that's been a favorite of mine for years. Lovely post today, dear.

    Happy Autumn days.


  8. I have always felt a connection with Greece. I am part Greek myself, and it is a dream of mine to visit there someday. Jess went to Athens a few years ago and had a great time. There is something about the Greek culture that I love, and it's so interesting that you connect with France. I think Nel does too.
