Writing for my beloved

Sundial closeup

It is time.

I am past

the autumn

of my life

(they say).

I am waiting

for you

if my heart

has its way.

It is time.

Time

for me

to dance 

Time

for me

to sing

out my voice.

Time

for beloveds

to re-live

that romance

Time

for me to

love again,

rejoice.

Time

calls you

to me.

Time

calls me

to you.

Time

beckons me

home.

Georgian Gems, Regency Reads & Victorian Voices

Publisher / date: Victor Gollancz / 1981
Pages: foreword; introduction; 70 full-color plates; postscript {about 160 pgs}
Hardcover
genre: Art

After introducing Sophie du Pont, how can I not introduce readers to the delightful Mrs Hurst Dancing & Other Scenes from Regency Life, 1812-1823; watercolors by Diana Sperling; text by Gordon Mingay.

Reading about Diana Sperling’s family and life will leave you wanting to know more; her works of art will leave you wanting to fetch your pencils and watercolors. The text covers enough to explain and expand on the drawings. You learn about Diana’s family, her life at Dynes Hall (Essex), the trouble with donkeys, horses, and spiders!

I first learned of this book on a trip to Riversdale. The period of Rosalie Calvert’s letters overlap with these drawings.

Diana’s watercolors were one set among three discussed in my talk entitled “Georgiana Darcy and the ‘Naive Art’ of…

Always resting when I am reading Mirth and Motivation

Mirth and Motivation

“A sense of humor… is needed armor. Joy in one’s heart and some laughter on one’s lips is a sign that the person down deep has a pretty good grasp of life.” Hugh Sidey

What I’ve Learned
Maya Angelou was interviewed by Oprah on her 70+ birthday… Oprah asked her what she thought of growing older. And, there on television, she said it was exciting… Regarding body changes, she said there were many, occurring everyday……like her breasts. They seemed to be in a race to see which will reach her waist, first. The audience laughed so hard they cried. Maya Angelou also said this: I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy…

I saw you

today

in a toddler’s dance class…

In the eyes of the children.

I saw you

today

in the love of the parents

who caressed their children with their eyes.

Parents who were present for themselves,

present for their children

 practicing your presence in their lives.

I heard you

today,

in the voice of the teacher,

in the call to breakfast from my family

in the laughter of children on a play date.

I heard you in my heart.

I felt your presence

in your guiding hand….throughout my day.

Humbly, I thank you for your gift of life.

I thank you for the gift of love.

I thank you for my love life.

I thank you for my loving life.
