My heart remains heavy for those that have lost their lives
through violence around the world.
My Sunday newspaper had a commentary by Leonard Pitts Jr.,
I am a fan of his commentaries.
He was writing about the City of Light, Paris,
but his words are appropriate in our hearts and in the world.
"It isn't bullets and bombs these monsters fear the most,
hate the most, or that hurts them the most.
No, that which lurks in shadow despises light
-and well it should. Light reveals bankrupt ideologies
for the failures they are.
Light draws people together.
Light gives courage.
And light give hope.
-- shine on."
This morning I watched a YouTube video of an interview with a little
boy and his father in Paris. His father explained that we fight with flowers
and the light of candles instead of guns. There is the light again.
May our light shine around the world.
The light in the photo and one cookie for you and one for me,
we will share the beauty of the day.
There are two words for the season we are in, Fall and Autumn.
Each year when we arrive at this season I wonder why there are two words
when there is only one word for Spring, Summer, and Winter.
Wikipedia says they are interchangeable.
Autumn equinox is leading us to Winter,
but my own opinion says Fall is used to describe the falling leaves.
Oh the falling leaves are so beautiful.
Walking through the crunch makes me feel like a child again.
I can't wait to go walking today and hear that crunch,
see the colors, and delight in the coolness of the day.
Many things bring great delight to me: tea, gardens, flowers, outdoors, food, and friends that cross my path. These all make my heart sing with small chuckles, giggles, laughter, and tears. It is my desire to seek beauty all around me, have the heart of a gypsy, a storyteller.
