What feeds your soul?


If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy,


If a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you,


If the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive. ~Eleonora Duse


(Eleonora Duse was an Italian Actress who was born in 1858, in Vigevano, Italy. She died of pneumonia in Pittsburg, Pennsylvania in 1924.)

I learn from others- like you Ms. C- that and what you point out bring me joy- and others sharing their joy...

You would die if you knew what was in my oven curing right now- maple brown sugar black forrest bacon and its going to be dipped in chocolate and then put in ice cream for a party tomorrow!
