Can extract sunshine from a cloudy day!

Join the great company of those who make the barren places of life fruitful with kindness. Carry a vision of heaven in your hearts, and you shall make your name,your college, the world, correspond to that vision. Your success and happiness lie within you. External conditions are the accidents of life, its outer wrappings. The great, enduring realities are love and service. Joy is the holy fire that keeps our purpose warm and our intelligence aglow. Resolve to keep happy, and your joy and you shall form an invincible host against difficulty. ~ Helen Keller

Valentine Thoughts♥´¯`•.¸¸.• ♥ •´¯`•.¸¸.♥

♥Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ In that book which is
My memory . . .
On the first page
That is the chapter when
I first met you
Appear the words . . .
Here begins a new life
♥´¯`•.¸¸.• ♥ •´¯`•.¸¸.♥
- Dante Alighieri
La Vita Nuova

Fault me for anything, but not this. I am  your eternal romantic, forever believing. Once I love, it will be as it should be - forever.

And if, by chance, forever has a  passageway, a back door that swings open to eternity, I'll take it, I'll be there, I'll be true.

And if the meaning of my life, and the toil of my days, and the words of my words,  be for naught, except to mean my self beside you, then grant that I have lived so fully for what I should. No one can be happier. 

For I have come and found what it is to find. My life has been a lady of kind. Far from  the ones I have known. When I found you, and you found me, my mandala came to be. A circle of  forever birthed. I am (born)  Love and will be - forever till eternity. Yours.

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ ""Pretty Miss Patience" - My Very First Handmade!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ "O men, grown sick with toil and care,
Leave for awhile the crowded mart;
O women, sinking with despair,
Weary of limb and faint of heart,
Forget your years to-day and come
As children back to childhood's house. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ "
~Phoebe Cary

 BIG smile! I can't believe it, really! My very first attempt at creating a handmade doll and I am truly uppity happy with how my pretty "Miss Patience" turned out to be.

Palpable! Palpable! Palpable it is, that juicy excitement slushing through my very marrow and veins  as I patiently stitched and fashioned and imagined her all dolled up together. Who says she isn't real? Isn't alive? She was just in my mind and now here she is, touchable, huggable!

Sweet and velvety, she sits prim and proper reminding me of what I have inside, what I AM inside, a bubble of dreams and light and faerie musings. As much as the next artist is an inspiration to me, the lesson here is, I am my own inspiration too! All good things and sweet tidings!

Ah, and now, but of course, "Miss Patience" needs a companion. Sister, friends and all sorts ov' folks to keep her company. A community of handmade beings is about to birth, and yes, yes, yes, I just can't wait to see!

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ " blaze of the rose-tree, wheat of the breeze:
and it follows that I am, because you are:
it follows from ‘you are’, that I am, and we:
and, because of love, you will, I will,We will, come to be. Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ " 

~ Pablo Neruda
(‘Perhaps not to be is to be without your being.’)

Love to you....
