* * *
holiday season
through the flames of candles
finding peace within

* * *
togetherness
– moments to appreciate
no footprints in the snow

* * *
lips and fingertips
we unwrap each other
in love

* * *

Wishing you and your loved ones Merry Christmas!

With love, belief and hope – Ese –

There are such a lot of things that have no place in summer and autumn and spring. Everything that’s a little shy and a little rum. Some kinds of night animals and people that don’t fit in with others and that nobody really believes in. They keep out of the way all the year. And then when everything’s quiet and white and the nights are long and most people are asleep—then they appear. /T.Jansson/

This curious world we inhabit is more wonderful than convenient;
more beautiful than it is useful; it is more to be
admired and enjoyed than used. /H.D.Thoreau/

Never love a wild thing… you can’t give your heart to a wild thing: the more you do,
the stronger they get. Until they’re strong enough to run into the woods.
Or fly into a tree. Then a taller tree. Then the sky. That’s how you’ll end up…
If you let yourself love a wild thing. You’ll end up looking at the sky. /T.Capote/
