Hi GZ!

i came to inform that i have a new one -- supposed to be a poem, but a formless one at my Certain Kind of woman blog.

just thought of informing the bloggers i visit regularly..and perhaps I wished you read..

Take your time, but hope you will find time for it :-)

wishes,
devika

So true, you must build the future on the past.
You know, I use to say that our children go higher than we did walking on our head.

I believe that most of what we're looking for, we've had all along. I love this quote. And the yellow daisy against the dark background just glows! You do have a way with words and photos :)

Thanks for the sweet pic and quote combo.

And also...thanks for stopping by! I've had a hard time carving out time to wander thru the 'net lately, and I am glad to see others keep wandering.

that reminds me: one can look for love all over the world, but eventually one must find it inside oneself!

This is a special post to me and I'm glad I found your site. Nice style, short and sophisticated in its simplicity. Wish the beautiful photos could be enlarged, but then maybe they're not intended to. Kind regards.
