A Rose will Bloom

Wishing you all a very happy day with your beloved, whether that is another individual, your self or the divine. I was planning to write about the wedding today...but...activities have spontaneously interceded with my blogging plans.

Love asks me no questions,
And gives me endless support...
~ William Shakespeare

I created and sent out some handmade valentines to fans, friends and patrons who I am so grateful to. In a few days I will post pictures and details here.

And think not you can
Direct the course of love,
For love,
If it finds you worthy,
Directs your course.
~ Gibran Kahlil Gibran

What I will share is that exactly nine years ago this evening Maestro Gregorio made me a delicious homemade dinner and then on bended knee proposed to me. It was all very romantic. My fragrance that evening was probably either Jasmine or Ylang Ylang.

"Soul meets soul on lover's lips."

Here is a clip from Franco Zeffrelli's 1968 Romeo and Juliet, I used it on an Etsy treasury I created last night titled the BELOVED.

Rather synchronistically Helg over at Perfume Shrine posted a clip of one of my all time favorite films, the 1998 version of Great Expectations directed by Alfonso Cuaron. Here is one of the beautiful scenes from that film. The art direction in this version of the Charles Dickens book of the same name is so stunning, with superb use of color script. It's eye candy.

A kiss is a lovely trick designed by nature
To stop speech when words become superfluous.
