Photo “Purple Sage” by Cord X.

“What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life’s pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.”  

-Joseph Addison

Cord explained that there are two different kinds of sage flowers.  One goes with the herb and the other, like the one above, is grown as decoration in San Antonio. That beauty was blooming just last week.

Cord shared other photos too that will be featured in the other Gems this week. Thanks so much, Cord!

“Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world’s more full of weeping than you can understand.”
-W.B. Yeats

It’s been just a bit over a year since I shared Yeats’ The Stolen Child, (Gems 4.70) but this mythical creatures week wouldn’t be the same without it.  It was that same day that I created the page, Missing BenjaminContinue reading

Reblogging “I Will Reignite”

It’s Les Misérables week on under1000skies. I recently found the entire book for free online, an unabridged version from 1916.* I did this painting (copied from the famous stage poster) in PSP9 a few years ago.

*Can’t find that link but I did find another from 1887, same translator (Isabel Hapgood), produced on Gutenberg Press.  GP does great work.

“The image of Cosette used for the iconic logo of the Les Misérables musical is … Dewynters creative director Russ Eglin adopted the art for the 1985 … First poster or playbill from the original 1985 London production…” -Fonts In Use

Meanwhile, this post from yesterday on Niki Flow goes out today to you, my under1000skies readers. If you follow both you’ve already read it.

My new Gravatar icon was inspired by Wayne Dyer (“Love, Period”) and Malukah’s beautiful song Reignite.

“I will never surrender / We’ll free the Earth and sky / Crush my heart into embers / And I will reignite / I will reignite…”

Thank you, dear reader.  Thank you, for all your prayers and good thoughts for my son Benjamin and for our family since the day he disappeared (2 Mar 2016).
