Quote of the Week

The heart, like the mind, has a memory.  And in it are kept the most precious keepsakes.  ― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

The memories we store in our minds bring forth pictures, sounds and smells. The memories of the heart are a bit harder to describe.  The best thing I can come up with is that memories of the heart are feelings.  Not just things that touch us visually, but how we felt at that moment in time.

For example, the picture above appears to be just barren trees in winter, but it was taken not so much for what it was, but the the way I felt looking at how the sunlight played upon the branches against the clouds in the background.

In a few days we begin a new year...and with it new memories.


  1. What a lovely sentiment. Maybe our most precious memories are stored in our hearts.

  2. Wishing you lovely new memories for the coming year.

  3. Hi Linda .. yes those trees will bring forth their range of greens - and Spring will be magical.

    Happy New Year .. and all the best in 2014 - cheers Hilary

  4. Cheryl- Indeed...for safekeeping.

    Timothy- And to you as well.

    Hilary- Yes, the trees were a conduit for the feelings of the light.

    Happy New Year to all!!
