reminds me of the night

you walked barefoot across my soul...

As always I love your still life collage of things. You have such a talent for creating them. The poem is wonderful too.

"Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, "A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!"

I have always loved this verse from Robert Browning to Elizabeth.
It says so much! hugs Nita....

Jeannene: The antique ornaments in the jar I debated on using but decided not to because they are so fragile. Your welcome, I meant it. Have a great day. xoxo Nita

Bobbie: Thank you. I really love doing the still life collages. I would love putting together a book of them. You are such an encourager Bobbie, thanks again. xoxo nita

Donna: I love that too!! Have you ever heard Mary Chapin Carpenter's song about this poem? She starts out with that very line. There is something so romantic about growing old with someone. Each knowing the others faults and deepest secrets.
I kept an obituary the other day from an old man who had just died this week, it was so lovingly written by his family that it made me cry. He had a life so well lived. In lieu of cards they asked that people go play catch with a child.Because that is what this man would have done. He and his wife had been married for 55 years. xoxo nita

One of my favorite poems (if not THE favorite) is The Raven by Edgar Allen Poe... my dad introduced me to him when I was in fourth grade, I memorized this poem immediately, and quoted it often...


Love the picture, it should be a Christmas greeting card.

Pixie: I love Edgar Allen Poe. And the Raven is one of my favorites. I also love The story, The Tell Tell Heart. I love most of his stories. When I was a kid I watched Vincent Price all the time in Edgar's stories. Do you remember him? And thank you for what you said about the piture I took. xoxo Nita
