My kitchen windowsill is so cheery--this rose is such a bright neon red-orange that it almost hurts my eyes (the colors in the pic don't do justice to its brilliance).
I love having beauty gracing my view of the outside world.
This quotation sums up how I am feeling today..
“Both abundance and lack exist simultaneously in our lives, as parallel realities. It is always our conscious choice which secret garden we will tend... when we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that's present: love, health, family, friends, work, the joys of nature and personal pursuits that bring us pleasure, the wasteland of illusion falls away and we experience Heaven on earth.”

PS: I'm currently planning some travel to Boston, Cape Cod and New Haven. If you're in that area and would like to meetup, or if you have a recommendation for a must-see place or tearoom, let me know! :)
