The heart wants what the heart wants...



and it whispers it to your soul...






when you happen upon beauty that reaches you on such a deep level.







Your heart races...




It is the same feeling




of being in love.







Do you ever wonder why you respond to certain things this way?




What are the beauties that make your knees buckle?




Whatever it is for you, I hope that you are surrounded in its beauty all weekend long. I am picking out paint colors. The magic begins anew in our little McMini by the Sea...
See you Monday.

We loved your comment over at The Hedge dear Sista of the Mysterious. MOTH reckons it's due to you that he's going to start up a new business selling 'No Bloody Idea' trees. Yours will be winging it's way across the Pacific shortly!

One ... of a certain turn of mind ... could not pick a hue more attuned to the heart, than the 'colour of old'. Your photographs are incredible!
