Be Mine


Let us take a break from the gripes, complaints, offensive and defensive words and overall negativity. After all, it's VALENTINE'S DAY!!!

When facing a single tree, if you look at a single one of its red leaves, you will not see all the others. When the eye is not set on one leaf, and you face the tree with nothing at all in mind, any number of leaves are visible to the eye without limit. But if a single leaf holds the eye, it will be as if the remaining leaves were not there.

(Takuan Soto)

“When we are unable to find tranquility within ourselves, it is useless to seek it elsewhere.”
Francois de La Rochefoucauld

Many persons have a wrong idea of what constitutes true happiness. It is not attained through self-gratification but through fidelity to a worthy purpose
- Helen Keller

Awww....I assume that you and your hubby are in Venice for what? To eat your strawberry along with the chocolate dip and drink some champagnes at Grand Canal. Make sure you get a drunk. ;-) Ahhhh.....

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you.
