There are common themes that run through my house:
they would be books and flowers.
The books are in bookcases, on desks and countertops and more,
silently begging to be picked up and read.
The flowers are everywhere too,
in artwork and silk arrangements
and in one very large, live poinsettia still in all her red glory.
What connection do these two themes have?
Appreciation of beauty.
The books contain words that come alive
with imagination and feelings and gusto,
promoting beauty of the spoken and written language.
The flowers are of many colors,
just like nature who is also beautiful.
They recall other seasons and the beauty therein.
I am glad to be in such a beautiful, loving, appreciative space
