For Victoria...

A very dear friend of mine has suffered a great loss this week. It reminds me that we should try to appreciate every minute of every day and to embrace the beauty that surrounds us and not to take anything for granted.
I think that all of us in our small blogging world understand this as is shown daily in your posts. Some may say what we do is frivolous - and I strongly disagree and believe we are all fortunate to have this passion that allows us to see the beauty around us, hopefully even in our darkest moments.

This is what I see today as the Hamptons rests in its winter serenity. I hope my friend is able to see this soon also.


  1. I am so sorry for your friends loss. We do need to remember to savor the beauty in the little things. Some of lifes most precious offerings are not monumental but are the tiny gifts of lesser deeds. Most appearing when we aren't even looking. Enjoy the Hamptons, I love it there.

  2. Hi Nancy - Strength and love to your friend, I hope the best for her.

    Your photos are just gorgeous. I especially love the peacock! Wow. That's some everyday view! I agree with you - seeing the beauty around you is a wonderful thing, and it's magnified ten-fold when you are surrounded by others that also see it. It makes the world so much more lovely.

  7. Just a quick note to say I'm thinking of you and your friend and sending warm thoughts your way.

    Tomorrow is up to someone bigger than us!
    My thoughts and prayers to you and your dear friend.
