Smooth sailing

The world is bathed in sunshine...

Butterflies and bees sail effortlessly over the waves of 
daffodils, dandelions and daisies that decorate 
the sea of green that is our lawn


'La vie,' in all its splendour, calls me outside...


But before I swan off...


Just wanted to leave you with this thought found 'here'

It struck a chord in me today :)

Compromise. It is one thing to meet another halfway. It is another to cave in and betray our own truth.

Adieu mes amis, à la prochaine...

  3. Dear Ange,

    It has been a while and I too think of you very often. The sailboats are lovely, especially with the introduction of calligraphy. Also the colourations capture the essence of sailboating. You have such a wonderful imagination.

    I like the quote and I think we should all carry it around in our wallets to be reminded daily that buying an item to make us feel good after someone has hurt us is not the answer, rather to not betray ourselves, our own beliefs.

    Thank you for sharing.

    Wishing you and your family all the very best,
    Egmont

  6. Very nice work Ange. Your boat is delightful, as are your photographs. Compromise is interesting I believe the english language lets us down as compromise indeed has degrees and more than one meaning.

  8. I can't believe I've missed so many of your posts, Ange! I have been too lazy, and I can't blame the weather.

Can't think of a famous quote that says 'communication makes the world go round' so you 'll just have to get my clumsy way of putting it instead ;-) Your comments are precious. Thanks for dropping by!
