BEAUTIFUL MAIL



Look at the stunning and rich color of this card!! This beauty came from Lyn yesterday and I am just loving it! Look at the sparkly seaweed and the cute "bubbles". The fish and beautiful mermaid were actually colored by hand and cut out perfectly and adhered to this card. I am just in awe.

I hope it brings a smile to you as it does to me.
Thank you, thank you, Lynnie!!!

And with this piece of art I will share from the much admired Kalil Gibran:

And a youth said, Speak to us of Friendship.
And he answered, saying:
Your friend is your needs answered.
He is your field which you sow with love and reap with thanksgiving.
and he is your board and your fireside.
for you come to him with your hunger, and you seek him for peace.
When your friend speaks his mind you fear not the "nay" in your own mind,
nor do you withhold the "ay."
And when he is silent your heart cease not
to listen to his heart;
For without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires,
all expectations are born and shared,
with joy that is unacclaimed.
When you part from your friend, you grieve not;
For that which you love most in him may be clearer in his absence,
as the mountain to the climber is clearer from the plain.
And let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit.
For love that seeks aught but the disclosure of it's own mystery
is not love but a net caught.
And let your best be for your friend.
If he must know the ebb of your tide, let him know it's flood also.
For what is your friend that you should seek him with hours to kill?
Seek him always with hours to live.
For it is his to fill your need, but not your emptiness.
And in the sweetness of friendship let there
be laughter, and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things the heart finds it's morning and is refreshed.
