Ron Paul

My son ordered me a yard sign.  I voted for him in the

All Things Red

Marilyn at 819 Ohio/Building Our New Old House asked us to Get the Red Out.
So here is my attempt to blaze a trail of red:

"Red is the ultimate cure for sadness." ~Bill Blass

"When in doubt wear red." ~Bill Blass

"Better a red face than a black heart." ~Portuguese proverb

"Red roses are for love triumphant." ~Bill Blass

"A careful driver is one who honks his horn when going
through a red light." ~Henry Morgan

"Make a remark," said the Red Queen, "it's ridiculous to
leave all the conversation to the pudding."

"Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own
skin.  That, or a kick-ass red lipstick." ~Gwyneth Paltrow

"Artists can color the sky red because they know it's blue.
Those of us who aren't artists must color things the way
they really are or people might think we're stupid." ~
Jules Feiffer

"An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere,
while a pessimist sees only the red stoplight...The truly
wise person is colorblind." ~Albert Schweitzer

"Give her two red roses, each with a note.  The first note
says 'For the woman I love' and the second, 'For my best
friend'." ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Pensieve's Poetic License-February

Our poem's this month are based on the sonnet.
It is supposed to be about something we love.

Music Inside

There is music in my soul
Melody and harmony in part
Out of my mouth it plays a role
Delivering dreams straight from the heart.

The notes I play are felt
The chorus follows verses
Words that spark and melt
Bring feelings to the surface.

How much of me can be revealed
What part of me is shown
The music can provide a shield
A safe refuge, a home.

All my hopes and all my dreams
Quietly display my world as its theme.

Please go explore the other sonnets at Robin's.  

Also this lovely package came for me this week.  It contained
some sweet melt-in-your mouth treats and a cookbook
that I won from Robin at Pensieve's.  What a delight!
