“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.”
~ Anais Nin (1903-1977), author, diarist
If I am honest I am not a big risk taker but I have taken some risks
in my life and have enjoyed them.
Sue is obviously not willing to risk posing for me today!!!

"If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again.”
~Flavia Weedn; author, artist Colin and I are certainly picking up the pieces at the moment, after a very stressful few months. However, we are now feeling we are coming out of that period and picking up the pieces.
“To dream anything that you want to dream. That's the beauty of the human mind. To do anything that you want to do. That is the strength of the human will. To trust yourself to test your limits. That is the courage to succeed.”

Make visible what, without you, might perhaps have never been seen.
~ Robert Bresson This quilt was being made for Sue’s 21st Birthday.
That was well over a decade ago!

rather than hidden away in my workbox waiting the final
“Setting goals is the first step in turning the invisible into the visible.”
~ Anthony Robbins
"Faith is to believe what we do not see; and the reward of this faith is to see what we believe"~ St Augustine It took me many years to start believing in myself and it was not until I met and married
Colin did I have the confidence to achieve things I had once thought were impossible.
He gave me the confidence to try and for that I will be eternally grateful.
Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy.
~Norman Vincent Peale
I say to the moment: Stay now! You are so beautiful!
~ Johann Wolfgang von GoetheThis is one beautiful young lady I love to come and stay with me.
You can take no credit for beauty at sixteen. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul's own doing. ~Marie Stopes
I expect some new phases of life this summer, and shall try to get the honey from each moment.
~ Lucy Stone
“Kindness in ourselves is the honey that blunts the sting of unkindness in another.”

The more light you allow within you, the brighter the world you live in will be.
~ Laura Wilson Candlelight is a soft and relaxing light that I love to let into my life especially when laying back in a bath full of bubbles!
There are two ways of spreading light; to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it. ~ Edith Wharton
