words by anais nin, lucy wadham and the Buddha intermingling with pictures by teamgloria

darlings

we feel a little Quiet (in a good way) and resolved in many issues and softly pleased (and yet humble) and also deeply rested and restored.

so just a few words from anais, lucy wadham and the Buddha (gosh, you’re right, that IS an eclectic mix) interspersed with pictures from our day.

before we creep into the boudoir with a vintage hardback memoir from edna ferber (thank you library requested materials service).

gosh. this is a helpful site for a little more background on the Buddha. *deep_bow_of_respect* OR you could always track down a copy of Mr. Richard Gere’s production made-for-television which we heard is Rather Go(o)d(ly) too.

    So much beauty and inspiration, all in one post! Plus a new sighting by non-other than the fantabulous Miss Jules Berlin!

  2. BEAUTYCALYPSE says:

    beautiful. I just stopped by to sit by Team Gloria’s window and listen to her recite the wonderful quotes… shhh.

        Yes, poor mail box, but, all things considered, I thought it might give you a little giggle to imagine the lovely How to Stay Sane in a Crazy World arriving in one of the worst storms in months and being dumped in a very wet postal bucket…..and surviving, rosy cheeked and beautiful, and sanity in tact. What an adventure, what a crazy ride. I am fairly sure that this will be the only copy of the book to land in a bucket box. Photos will be sent (not of the bucket) once the book is properly beribboned for the photo shoot.

do say something - do :-)
