son coeur en ce moment{her heart in that moment}

l'essence d'un moment
et son coeur enveloppe en son sein

{the essence of that moment,
& her heart wrapped within it..

{that moment}

"I do not paint these works as a visitor to the landscape, but as one who lived in it and experienced it everyday"

that moment she held
like a dream
.. .
flowing through her fingertips
like a wave

a piece of her melody.. .

finding this painting by Vida Lahey & the hardship it depicts{while they try most elegantly to care for their families}

adoring these shots for the newspaper hats & abundant beauties,
i love their hair so!!!,
& this beautiful little movie from Mimco

{& a memory from long ago.. .}

~ {written in}a pattern of stars.. .

subtle delights span the days destinations ~ a fuschia hued velvet clutch{i've never had a clutch purse before!} & a pretty von treskow necklace i've had on layby for about a bazillion years

as my heart heaves & falls in a delicate pattern of stars{with the soft & supple movement of a breeze}!!!

& thinking of this
- turning it carefully -
over & over in the palm of my mind, like a smooth & precious stone.. .

"-True success in this life comes in consecrating our lives-that is, our time and choices-to God’s purposes (see John 17:1, 4; D&C 19:19). In so doing, we permit Him to raise us to our highest destiny.
-Elder B. H. Roberts once expressed the process in these words: 'The man who so walks in the light and wisdom and power of God, will at the last, by the very force of association, make the light and wisdom and power of God his own-weaving those bright rays into a chain divine, linking himself forever to God and God to him. This [is] the sum of Messiah’s mystic words, ‘Thou, Father, in me, and I in thee’-beyond this human greatness cannot achieve.'2
-In the words of Thomas Carlyle: 'All true Work is sacred; in all true Work, were it but true hand-labour, there is something of divineness. Labour, wide as the Earth, has its summit in Heaven.'3"

pastel petals & spoons filled with coconut

i whisk these words into my heart & let them simmer & ambulate down halls & up turrets until they settle in a kaleidesope of the truly beautiful

~ meanwhile.. .hours spent stewing apples{the easiest recipe ever, & everyone ate some with ice cream, such success!}, reading words, & treating myself to a 3 pack of Ferrero Rocher's{because i'm worth it.. .so they say :) }

loveliest thoughts

p.s if you'd like to try,
~to stew apples, peel about 6 green apples & slice ever so finely into a saucepan.. .
cover about 2/3 of the apples with water.. .
add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder.. .
add 1 or 2{or three :) } teaspoons of (organic raw, or whatever's in your pantry) sugar
& simmer for about 15 minutes.. .
serve with ice cream & smiles!!!
