💛 Enjoying my morning, just being my nerdy self~

Gustave Flaubert & I would have gotten along swimmingly. And, all the while, I would have been tugging at his sleeve, whispering, “But your life IS beautiful.”

Flaubert wrote to Chevalier,
“My life, which in my dreams is so beautiful, so poetic, so vast, so filled with love, will turn out to be like everyone else’s: monotonous, sensible, stupid. I’ll attend law school, be admitted to the bar and end up as a respectable assistant district attorney in a small provincial town such as Yvetot or Dieppe.. Poor madman, who dreamt of glory, love, laurels, journeys, the Orient.’

THE ART OF TRAVEL, Alain De Botton

For Pete’s sake, the man lived in Rouen!

2 QUOTES:

“Be regular and orderly in your life, so that you may be violent and original in your work.”

“The art of writing is the art of discovering what you believe.”

Sunday~

Often, we are so caught up in our day-to-day activities and our thoughts that we do not recognize one of the most precious gifts HE gave us. Our senses –

To see the tall oak and watch the leaves and limbs sway against the gentle breeze – cool and delicate when it touches our skin or lifts our hair; the smell of the earth- rich soil tilled in the garden, the mossy spots around the Crepe Myrtle – the delicate decay of leaves, damp at the base of the stately oak; the sounds of birds with birdsong dancing from verdant brush and limb; the exquisite taste of a perfect cappuccino!

Be still. Be silent. Give that time to yourself and HIM each day.

Ashamedly, I admit, I am guilty too.
