stormy seas

You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance, and write poems, and suffer, and understand, for all that is life. - J. Krishnamurti, Indian Philosopher

just like christmas morning!

Today I received 2 of my 3 recent Etsy purchases & they are so utterly fantastic! I actually squealed when I opened the packages.
The cute packaging & personalized notes were icing on the cake.

I, with deeper instinct, chose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naive or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman. - Anais Nin
