Happy Birthday Anita! You have so many beautiful images in this post I can’t begin to choose my favourites.
I’ve just replied to a comment from you on my blog. I used the words ”the icing on the cake” and then came over for a visit with you and there are those words again. What are the chances of that? What a strange coincidence we must be on the same wavelength today.
Happy Birthday Sweet Lady!

Sylvia said...

P.S. I adore every single image of your photo collection here as well as very single word Sir Paul is singing...I can't stop scrolling and staring at these pictures...

francis said...

les yeus du coeur voient
la main dessine des merveilles
les dieux se réjouissent

le plaisir intime
de la langue qui coule
des livres quón aime

la merveille d'etre
qui émerveille en tout
détre émerveillement

le bleuté devient jaune
et c'est aujourdhui

couchée dans le noir
je regarde la lune
qui vogue vers le jour

alourdis de nuit
les nuages se reposent
au fond des vallées

Happy birthday Anita
I share these with you
My friend Barbara who lives in France wrote them and gave me a book she made herself with
those and more .
She is an artist who works with SILK .
She send me the book for my
girlfriends-birthday-celebration !

I hope you are having a wonderful birthday !

Happy birthday, dear friend. I made you something on my page. I was going to email it but I think I'll do both.
Beautiful post, beautiful music, beautiful heart.
Many blessings to you, love.

Renae at simple sequins said...

Oh I am so o o o sorry that you have a ton of snow now. What is with this weather. We didn't have moisture but we dipped down to 27° again last night! They continue to say we will have warm temps later in the week but their is too much arctic air coming down to us as the week progresses. Man! I want spring so badly. This is the 3rd night in the week that we have had to cover our little pea seedlings with a big old quilt to protect them.

We need springtime. We need spring time temps and sky. We need the spring-fever to envelope us and make a new again.

Jade said...
