"This is the violet hour, the hour of hush and wonder, when the affectations glow and valor is reborn, when the shadows deepen along the edge of the forest and we believe that, if we watch carefully, at any moment we may see the unicorn."

  4. Who'd have thought blog friendships could be so meaningful, not me.
    I love coming here, seeing your world, and jumping into opera for the first time, holding your hand.
    Beautiful post, Robin,,,
    Hope your Easter Day has been full of sunshine.
    It's rained and stormed here all day, but it's been very sunny inside.

    1. Babs...believe me, until I met Renee over two years ago, I had no idea how wonderful some of the people on the blogs were....at a truly dark time in my life...she encouraged me to *open the blogging door and walk through it*....like Alice, I found another, fabulous world...and true friends. I have met many of our friends *out there* - and they are as sweet and wonderful as they are on their blogs....

      I am really happy we have met now too....I think we share a lot of the same passion for - LIFE!

      Big Hugs to you!!!

  7. A wonderful list of blessings. I'm a big believer in counting them.

    Techie question for you - how do you set up comments so you can reply directly to them? (with the little "Reply" tab under each comment)?

  9. Hi CS....I hope you had a wonderful Easter Weekend! You are right - it is so important to realise one HAS things to be grateful for and to share them.

    As for the *techie question*...I wish I had a clever answer....but, a few months back, when we were all coping with that awful "Robot Word Verification", as soon as I removed mine. I was given the option to reply directly under a specific comment....I don't know how or why...

    Spring Hugs to you !!!

    ♥ Robin ♥

  10. It is apparent that regardless of how appealing your blog posts are, on your ID, people will never ever include their sort on these events such as images and video clips without solid 'call for action'. buy targeted facebook likes
