The world of light and speech

♥ I like not only to be loved, but also to be told that I am loved. I am not sure that you are of the same mind. But the realm of silence is large enough beyond the grave. This is the world of light and speech, and I shall take leave to tell you that you are very dear. ― George Eliot
♥ quiet evenings
♥ candlelight
♥ a clean, shiny bathroom
♥ tiny hints of spring
♥ “It’s nobody’s fault but my own! I was looking up… it was the nearest thing to heaven! You were there…” — An Affair to Remember
♥ walking in the city
♥ soap opera plot lines
♥ travel plans
♥ morning light diffused through gauzy curtains
♥ soft, enormous clumps of falling snow
♥ waking slowly
♥ In that moment of recognition he is not consumed by a rushing sensation of love–quite simply a door opens to a room that has never gone away. ― Simon Van Booy, The Secret Lives of People in Love

  1. Elizabeth, I loved that the pianist was from Iceland — a country near & dear to my heart, having visited there once and been captivated by its beauty. I think this is one of my favorite “your lists.” (All of them are appealing, but this one spoke to my heart.) Thank you.
