“It is easy in the world to live after the world's opinions; it is easy in solitude to live after your own; but the great man is he who in the midst of the crowd keeps with perfect sweetness the independence of solitude”

  Ralph Waldo Emerson

I understand now why my mother enjoyed having her moments of solitude. When I was young, I yearned for the approval and noise of the crowd. Now I am older, wiser, and I seek the approval of the silence. It is a perfect day my dearest.....Nita

Prachtig die roos.
Mijn rozen op het balkon zijn helaas alletwee gesneuveld, maar ik ga nieuwe halen. Rozen horen bij het leven en horen bij de zomerzon.
Veel liefs

Afgelopen zaterdag was ik in Den Haag in het Rosarium, kijk maar op mij blog .....

How sweet those moments of chosen solitude can be.
Your rose is splendid!
