you must make the world a more beautiful place.

Miss Rumphius by Barbara Cooney

I didn’t know when I began on my journey, that I would come to this place, but the longer I live, the deeper in my heart I hear the words:

The world will be saved by beauty

From The Idiot by Dostoevsky

Through grief came writing, gardening, a new home and new ventures while raising five children on earth and remembering my four children in heaven.

If you are new here, take a look and explore the musings, the bouquets, the holy cards. I hope it will also inspire you to consider how you, too, can try to make the world a more beautiful place.
