Life

I received a beautiful parcel today from Liz who is my partner in Tara Dawn´s creativity exchange. I feel like the man in Amélie that got his little trinket box back. The card Liz sent is so beautiful and the quote so sums up how I have come to feel about my own life :
" She said that she cried atleast once each day not because she was sad but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short".
Thankyou Liz, for bringing tears to my eyes today - the beauty of your artwork, the beautiful music, the beauty in little trinkets and papers and the beauty in you that you have shared with me are things I will treasure.

See what I sent Liz here.

and the words on the card are by brian andreas. he has a wonderful site with other stories at www.storypeople.com. not to sound like a commercial, but he is really quite fantastic.
