Inside myself is a place where I live all alone, and that's where I renew my springs that never dry up ~ Pearl S. Buck

Beautiful, this picture is poetry in image, pure beauty. This image not only makes you want to write poetry is that poetry is already represented.

Hello, Ash. Sorry this reply has been so delayed. Between traveling and returning home and getting ready to travel again (tomorrow morning!!) I've been swamped. And two books sold on Amazon and I had to make two separate trips to the post office to make sure I got them out before 5:30 today. I feel like I've been coming and going. On top of that, I sold my car today. That was unexpected but a good piece of luck because now we have cash for our trip to Phoenix, Arizona. I'm blabbing on and on so I'll stop. I still need to get a post of the Oregon trip finished and put up. Sharing a computer can really be the pits sometimes.

As I take a breath, I want to inhale the beauty of the gorgeous pink lily. What a perfect flower to match up to Buck's stirring sentiment.

The photo is poetry in still life...not sure I understand Ms. Buck's comment, though. Why do her springs need renewing if they never dry up?

I know, I know. I'm being picky. Or silly. ;-)

Did you read a Pearl Buck book?

I was very young when I read her book and really liked it.
