The recesses of my mind

I meant to write, even with my editor’s voice in my head causing havoc with my process but I haven’t the heart for it just now, I’m dreaming of holiday and all due to a charming gentleman from Barbados. When he smiles he is perfection. I’m the silliest of creatures I see that, for truth to tell I haven’t even been to the cinema all year, let alone holiday. In fact, if my love ones weren’t so very insistent I would never leave the house but for work. I swear there are days when I hardly recognize the worrisome doubt filled thing I’ve become.

All that aside it is lovely here today so I'll tend my rosemary plant. I've brought it out for some sun but the nights are still too cold for me to put it back in the garden. Forgive my descent into self-pity and I vow, I'll post something of genuine interest in a day or two.

My love, my care,


  1. I hope you have a refreshing, relaxing day, Simone, it's sounds like you've earned a good break. I adore the painting by the way, thanks for sharing :)

  2. To voice your opinions and thoughts is of interest. Besides, we all need to have a little pity party for ourselves from time to time. It helps. :)

    Take care of the rosemary, it is very calming.

  3. Hope you have a wonderful day tending to your rosemary, regardless of whether is is indoors or outdoors!

  4. Hello my dear Simone!-)*

    I wish that I can taking you with me on really dear Friend!
    Another places and many intresting peoples around,beautiful architecture and the Mother Nature:-)That is what do you need to seeing sometimes if it possible!-)*

    My hugs and love,

  5. Enjoy your rosemary tending Simone - we all need a little bit of hibernation time occasionally.

    Beautiful painting.


  6. Barbados sounds like a very good idea! Take care of yourself :)

  7. Yes, a good holiday is what you need. Others to make the bed, wash the dishes, clean the bathroom. Even one week is very refreshing.

    I wish you calm. Bisou, Cro.

  8. I think we all go through periods when we'd rather hibernate than socialize. All we can do is hope these moods pass quickly.

    My dream escape is a cabin in the woods, overlooking a quiet lake. No telephone, no television, no people. I would, however, have electricity and internet service.

  9. simone, you should never, never feel obliged to apologize for your emotions. i say let them spill onto everything within reach. sure, it's messy and inconvenient sometimes, but that's life. friends, even virtual ones, will appreciate you even when you make a mess. i make messes all the time. without chaos and emotional upheaval, we cannot full appreciate order and calmness.

    the picture is lovely. as are you.

    i hope tomorrow is better for you.

  10. Heade's art is simple and breathtaking all at once. My first introduction to his art. Thanks.

    Some of the best vacations I've taken, were the ones where I never strayed from home.

  11. Oh yes, take a break and it the relaxing time will refresh you and grant you wonderful new ideas.

  12. Dear Simone, you're so beautiful and such a dearest friend. Every day you inspire so many people.

    hope you are well,

  13. Hi Simone,
    We all have days like this. Don't be too hard on yourself. The sun will come out tomorrow.
    All the best.

  14. Simone,
    What a beautiful images. All spring I've seen wonderful images of 'real' apple blossoms, but this painting is so lovely. Thanks for sharing. Rita
