The waving of our flag.......
In honor of "Flag Day" today in America.
June 14th our official flag day!
This is an early post for me, since I am also going out of town. Alan our Sepia Saturday creator, is officially on holiday as well, and has turned his mighty ship over to Marilyn until his return. In honor of Marilyn's first sailing, I couldn't sink ship, so early it is!
I've taken the theme of Farewell (seems fitting!) but as you'll see by checking other Sepia posts there are many themes possible!
When it comes to farewells there are many as well.
"Farewell, fair cruelty." - William Shakespeare
As in this Farewell Caress, a painting reflecting the beautiful horse, Princess being fed just before the man outside the stall (the new owner) will be taking her away. Most certainly a very tender moment for the young woman resting her head against Princess. It appears the dog may be just as sad. I'm not so sure about the cat.
"Why does it take a minute to say hello, and forever to say good-bye, farewell, Ciao, Adieux or Salut!?"
"The return makes one love the farewell!" - Alfred de Musset
Although, his grip appears quite tight, wouldn't you say?
Perhaps he's saying, "Promise me this, you will wait for me?"
But his intent, quite obvious!
All we know, is that he's apparently from the 7th Reg't.
From somewhere out on the dusty trail where tumbleweeds flow free.......
Too bad Alan is away, because I believe he's a fan of this actress, Mary Pickford who is gathered with other actors from their production "Rags" as they bid farewell as the film is completed! Dated 1915. Rags farewell to the west, a western.
"The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may be the beginning."
- Ivy Baker Priest
When is a kiss, just a kiss?
"There's a line between love and fascination
That's hard to see on an evening such as this,
For they both give the very same sensation
When you're lost in the magic of a kiss."
- Ned Washington from the song
"My Foolish Heart"
A great enormous THANK-YOU Marilyn for keeping Sepia Saturday up and running!
