Before the ice is in the pools,
Before the skaters go,
Or any cheek at nightfall
Is tarnished by the snow,
Before the fields have finished,
Before the Christmas tree,
Wonder upon wonder
Will arrive to me!

Emily Dickinson

Picture was taken(and the candle was lit) one year ago...for someone I love very dearly...And now this little light of mine will shine...just for you!

Oh dearest, your photo is so beautiful; one lone candle, one single light can make such a world of difference and shine ever so bright. Thank you for extending your heart out to us all! Bisous, Anita

Bonsoir ma belle! Oh, yes, I love birds! I am so attracted to them for decorating, birdwatching, and just about anything! You notice that I have used birds in my first play and my story to you? I LOVE BIRDS! I thought of you when I was decorating my tree wondering, "I bet the Dutchess likes birds..." Look in the courrier chèrie, something with wings is on its way....
