Purple

Welcome to another






Purple 
is our theme.




Ecstatic


"We cannot live only for ourselves.
A thousand fibers connect us 
with other fellow men,
and among those fibers,
as sympathetic threads,
our actions run as causes,
and they come back to us as effects."
Herman Melville



Eat well. Live well. Laugh often.






"The soft overcomes the hard.
The slow overcomes the fast.
Let your workings remain a mystery.
Just show people the results."
Tao Te Ching



Drink well. Play hard. Live long.





"Tis skill, not strength, that governs the ship."
Thomas Fuller





"I would rather be a little nobody
than to be an evil somebody."
Abraham Lincoln



"A talent is formed in stillness,
a character in the world's torrent."
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe




"Solitude is where I place my chaos
to rest and awaken my inner peace."
Nikki Rowe

Thanks for stopping in 
and take good care of you!

Lovely post. I am a fan of purple. Colours symbolising feminism sometimes include green and white, sometimes gold and white, but ALWAYS include purple.

I love the colour purple and all your purpley photos! I'd include a bar of Cadbury's Dairy Milk chocolate as that's purple and my favourite chocolate!
