Pearls of Wisdom

Nuggets of truth
tucked into your heart & soul
only to be pulled out later & thoughtfully examined
when you're securely in the quiet of your own thoughts

Inspired by this

from my dearest Joy via Uncanny Festoon


Re-imagined into....

~3 labor intensive hours of love from me to you~

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.”
Tao Te Ching

~Pearls of Wisdom~
...weighted down by the cadence of the speech,
she was listening intently now,
every word thoughtfully stored away until she was immobilized
... all those pearls of wisdom were a heavy load to carry...

Wishing you birds a breezy cool weekend!
I haven't been able to blow dry my hair all week it's been so nasty hot!
I'm officially the queen of braids :)
