Sunday Citar - To Breathe

Andrew Wyeth - Christina's World

I took a deep breath and listened to the old bray of my heart: I am, I am, I am.
Sylvia Plath

Enjoy this beautiful day and breathe anew.

We do forget to do that sometimes, don't we?
Have a great holiday!

Both are beautiful, quote and painting. I love Andrew Wyeth. He's from my hometown ^_^ Have a wonderful, relaxing and fun 4th. Thanks so much for stopping by! Got your gmail too. Sometimes I forget to check it.

Without breath we are nothing and yet so often we forget to stop and take a breath in all our business. Thanks for sharing.

We saw a Neil Diamond impersonator in concert Friday and his rendition of "I Am I Said," was very angsty. This quote by Plath seems to echo the same sentiment. You're probably watching fireworks as I write this, so happy 4th!

I've always loved that painting ... Andrew Wyeth is my favorite artist! And I had one of those weeks where I often needed to remind myself just to breathe. What a great combo - thanks for sharing!

Am stopping to breath and noticed the beauty that surrounds me on our farm. Thanks for the poignant reminder, Kelly. =)
