Words of Wisdom : Age of Adaline

Anni, amori e bicchieri di vino, nun se contano mai.
"Years, lovers and glasses of wine; these things should never be counted."
Age of Adaline - (It's an Italian saying.)

I thought Age of Adaline was a total dream...
Apart from featuring a stunning through-the-decades wardrobe
and the beautiful Blake Lively,
it's a story that still has me tingling four days later.

...So much to think about, dream about and consider...
...Better pour a glass of wine!!

What are those Purple Trees in L.A.?

If you are coasting into L.A. this time of year,
you may be surprised and delighted to be greeted warmly
by a wonderful watercolor wash of purple blossoming trees!!

What are those lovely purple trees dotting 
the cityscape of Los Angeles in spring called?
...They're jacaranda trees!!
...and today's Friday Flower Pick=).

I'm lucky to live on a street lined with jacaranda trees, 
so I don't have to go very far to try my hand 
at capturing the blossoms' ephemeral beauty!!

Here's this season's first attempt:

I hope your day is washed in a lovely pastel purple too...

Words of Wisdom : Heaven Is

"Heaven is where you think of nowhere else."
(Travel author)

Laying under the Caribbean sun, on a sandy beach, is a nobrainer.
Heaven is Jost.
...But how about curled up with a enrapturing book?
...or lost in a fascinating conversation?
...or absorbed in your favorite craft?
Enjoying the heaven here and now is the secret sauce of life!!
