On being human

There’s one sad truth in life I’ve found
While journeying east and west –
The only folks we really wound
Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know,
We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow
To those who love us best.

~Ella Wheeler Wilcox

Things that make my heart sigh

I stumbled upon an online flea market and fell in love! Online window shopping is a treat I rarely indulge in these days because 1) I try not to tempt myself to desire material things; and 2) I couldn’t afford to buy them even if I wanted them. But these pretty things are so much fun and I can think of more dangerous ways to while away a stormy summer Saturday.
