Binding Threads

The Threads That Bind
Let go of the people who cause constant pain; let go
of the negativity that colors a room more darkly
 than any coat of paint.
 Keep close the people you love, the ones
who stay engaged and open to life, 
who bring joy and
peace the the house and garden.
                         -Dominique Browning

A Balancing Act

I dream of an art of balance, purity, tranquillity, devoid of distrubing or disquieting subject matter . . . something akin to a good armchair.    -Henri Matisse

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

"If you are honest, people may cheat you. Be honest anyway. If you find happiness, people may be jealous. Be happy anyway. The good you do today may be forgotten tomorrow. Do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough. Give your best anyway. For you see, in the end, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway." - Mother Teresa

Magic of a Flower

Pink Magic

To believe in magic as a viable way of enhancing 
our quality of life 
does require a leap of faith.  
We must see life in slightly romantic terms; 
recognize falling in love or
 growing a flower or even cooking a perfect pie 
as a demonstration of the magic of balance, 
of everything coming together in just the right way. 
- Titania Hardie

The cheerful, bright flowers of primroses can be enjoyed inside the home as well as outdoors.  Certain species, such as the dainty fairy primrose and the Polyantha primrose, do especially well as houseplants.  Place them in a cool spot with indirect sunlight and keep the soil moist.  The plants will reward you with spectacular color in late winter and early spring.  Depending on the species, flower color may be white, red, pink, yellow, blue, or purple. - -
