"Join me on my hunt for new ways to see beauty and to express feeling ... to keep life simple, to notice the little things and to love it all. "

Annie Edelman

Our bright star...

When they'd ask me if it was cold in her shadow,
I'd tell them that I knew there was a shadow
but we were always kept playing on the sunny side.

Keep your eye on the shiny bits.

I told her I liked him because he was
a "what you see is what you get" kind of guy.
And she said, " Everybody has shiny bits and murky shadows
that you can't see from the outside.
And, you usually see what you look for, at first.
But eventually it all gets a turn to bubble up to the surface
and you can't help but glimpse it then."
So I decided, right then and there,
that if I was going to live happily every after,
I had better keep my eye on the shiny bits.

Her kind little message.

She just knew which kind little message to give each and everyone,
so they could tuck it into their heart pocket and keep it safe there, forever and ever.
I take mine out on cold days when I get lonely.
It's a bit tattered these days but it still makes me feel warm and special.
