Don't Cry


Don't cry when the sun is gone, because the tears won't let you see the stars. ~Violeta Parra

But the sheen of tears can be happy. :)

Hey GZ, thanks so much for the incredible comment you left about my painting, "Replenishing Her Spirit." Like your site, I too like to give words of encouragement when I can, and to possibly inspire people in some small way.
In turn, your site always makes me smile or say..."YES!! She's so right on!" So thank you for all of the thought provoking, wonderful posts you share :)
Blessings for the new year...Laurel

yes, Brian tears come in all shapes and sizes ;)

Laurel- thanks. I'm grateful to have a shared goal of inspiring others, even in a small way as you pointed out. I passed "Replenishing Her Spirit" on to all the women in my life, it touched me that much.

This looks like a magnificent sunset, the final one maybe.

Very cool! What's really awesome is being able to see stars when the sun is out.

And I ever say that a good shower is like the rain it can wash your tears

I thought it was very profound and can be applied to so many things. Just replace the words "sun" and "stars" with anything....

I wasn't aware of Violeta but, I look forward to listening to her music. Thank you for commenting.

I read this as positive. Life is never static. We must not spend time grieving as there's so much to expect in our beautiful life.

I agree full heartedly, Ruby!
