the "pause that refreshes"


no tea today

:)



I'm going to be taking a blog break for a little while
summer life with my family is taking up all of my time

*

I'll post my photos here and there
(like I've been doing)
but the next 2 weeks look totally crazy

I'll also make the rounds and visit folks
... my favorite late night wind down activity :)

*

here's a beautiful song I wanted to share
it's only 3 minutes - you'll be glad you took the time - sip your tea and listen along:


Sonnet 18
Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate;
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date;
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
-William Shakespeare

I'm also going on a blog break come Thursday---two weeks with friends in the country---that David Gilmore was just what I needed tonight, I'm stealing and passing it on with gratitude.

If I say I'm not happy about you leaving even for a short time would it make any difference??? Might you stay???
Nah...I didn't think so.
Have a wonderful break and I'll just sit here with my cuppa and enjoy that beautiful song until you return...Have fun! :D

I love the Coke sign-my youngest daughter is doing a project with Coke. You will be so missed. Thanks for the song-I couldn't make it through without tears. Take care and be blessed!

Kimmie...I love David Gilmour!! He is one of my absolute favorites. He is a phenomenal guitar player too. And this floating studio???!!! OMG...what a beautiful place. Thanks for sharing. Sometimes life just gets in the way, doesn't it!! Enjoy your time away. I know that I am blogging less these days too. Just too busy lately.

Beautiful post with the added joy and pleasure of the video of David Gilmour. Quite a way from Pink Floyd to Shakespeare but what a move! I saw the house boat studio on a TV programme some time ago... what a setting.
Enjoy your family and your break...
