Morning Jewels

A  L  O  H  A !

“Do not say a little 
in many words
 but a great deal 
in a few.”


"With melted opals
 for my milk,
for my cracker."

Gwendolyn Brooks

" Smaug lay, with wings folded

 like an immeasurable bat, 

turned partly on one side,

 so that the hobbit could see 

his underparts and his long pale belly 

crusted with gems 

and fragments of gold

 from his long lying 

on his costly bed."

J.R.R. Tolkien, 
The Hobbit

"There are worlds
 in an opal. "

Terri Guillemets

"But lay an Opal
 on her breast,
And hope will lull 
those woes to rest."


 takes people's minds 
off your wrinkles."
Sonja Henie

" Every second
Every second

 of   infinite   value. "

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I take a deep breath, then I smile. And that may seem like not much, but it's one of those moments that flavors the rest of the day. And the flavor is happy. Thanks for these beautiful pics and inspiring quotes.

Haha. I love the quote of Jewelery. I'm the opposite. I don't pay attentions to jewelery but love looking at wrinkles. So happy I was able to make it to your blog today!xo
