There is nothing like a smart tailored suit to put a smile on your face
or a Norman Parkinson feathered hat
to put a spring in your step.
But if you don't have a suit, a reason to wear a feathered chapeau or the stamina to wear spiked talons, there is one thing that you can slip on for a brush with elegance and grace
BRINCOS DE PÉROLA
Un collier de perles
ANILLO DE PERLAS
and beautiful friends
Les femmes d'un certain âge are familiar with the glow
and aesthetic pleasure of pearls.
I have often heard my French colleagues say to a beloved friend, "Tu es une perle", to communicate the sense of, "You are a rare find, a GEM."
Diamonds may be "A Girl's Best Friend"
but YOU all are PEARLS, friends who are a rare find, of great worth, of everlasting beauty.
THANK YOU EVERYONE, who has
made me laugh
given me advice
have been by my side, virtually....
I celebrate YOU.
VOUS ÊTES DES PERLES
So now my PEARL FRIENDS,go out and be the rare and creative gems that you are
get some rest as well
and be sure to visit my rare gem of a husband at his blog, Rattus Scribus, and look back at his posts when you get a moment, to see what a burgeoning writer has to say about life and friendships; a rare gem indeed.
