I spotted this collection of everlasting love tokens after a long walk on Dartmoor one day with John. We were passing though a village when I noticed this scene in the window of someone’s home. If you look to the far left you can see John’s reflection lined up perfectly with the heart shaped stones in the window. Sometimes in life you think the thing you are focusing your attention on is all important, but if you pause for a minute and pull back, the real gift is waiting quietly just to be seen.
I tend concentrate a lot of energy on my writing and projects and can appear to lose sight of what else is happening around me at times. John is always there…constant and solid like these natural expressions of love in my photo. On this Love Thursday, I’d like to remind him that he fills my life and my view and even when he’s standing off to the side….I still see him.
Here’s a little song for him…from Ray LaMontagne…have a listen and pass it on to someone you love today.
Greetings. I wish to have such a list!
this is a beautiful post! happy love thursday.
Oh I love Ray LaMontagne! And I love your picture – what a great find! That your love is waiting at the end of a trail of hearts? Icing on the cake. 🙂
Happy Love Thursday!
Reading your post brings to mind the song “Love is in the air”. Your love for John is present from your words! Hope you have a great Love Thursday! Is this an English event? Take care! Judy
I love this post. It’s the kind of moment I live for – if we slow down and pay attention, it’s amazing what we find.
Thanks for capturing it. It’s my inspiration of the day.
Lovely sentiment! I, too, collect heartstones, there is something magical about them. Love the song, too.
Sorry about the long silence, I appreciated your last comment so much, thank you! And I have been reading here and following the progress of your room. That is such a great gift!! And with respect to the position of your desk facing the wall is bad feng shui as it can make you “blocked”, personally I hate having my back face the room unless I am looking out through a window at the same time. That’s what I will do in my new apartment, my desk will be under the window from where I can see Mt. Baker (on a clear day.) Whatever you decide I am sure it will be a lovely room and I look forward to seeing the end result!
Your words are so true!! Just stopped by to see what gift you have given on today’s journey.. and it is a beautiful gift of love. I hope all is well with you!
this is lovely-“…the real gift is waiting quietly to be seen…” a great reminder! thanks for sharing.
