my comfort

self portrait with geranium

Oh, the comfort,
the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person,

having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words,
but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together,
certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping,
and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away.

George Elliot

and how I feel about my blog and all of you who visit here each day, with love - thank you

Firewood stacking, a little home reno project, walks with the sisters, a delicious dinner of rosemary feta chicken in filo pastry* (I'm cooking tonight), a movie - all shared with comfort.
Oh, the comfort ... my comfort - my history lovin' Prince (of All Things Good).

Happy Sunday to all.
