Pink kisses too




Love.

A dizzy joy, a tender kiss but also that sneaking warmth at light's last lark.



Happily, my definition of it has only expanded with age.





Whatever form it takes, may it find you and hold you this Valentine's Day.

Pass it on.

Today and every day!







Many thanks to the inspiring and inspired Julia in Berlin for sharing this lovely song.

As you can see, I am taking my own advice and passing it along...

Happy Valentine's Day Heather I hope you have a wonderful time with your three men! I'm slightly jealous you're entering spring already but we aren't far behind.

Does it say something about my mood that my favorite pic is the dark tree? But they are all beautiful, I love the pink kisses, too! I hope you get a kiss today; I know for certain that you have two puppies there who would probably love to give you sloppy kisses! (do you know that Lucy kisses on demand? Licks my lips when I say, "give me a kiss!"). Good to remember, on this day and every day, that love has many definitions; best thing, I think, is to be grateful and to give love! Happy Valentine's Day!!!!!

I love Paul's song. He sang it at his concert in Vegas that I was lucky enough to attend and it was just wonderful. It's reminds me of vintage McCartney.
Beautiful pics.
Happy Valentine's to you!

I was lucky enough (seriously, blessed) to have a "box" at the "Beatles" first " (who knew it would be the only?") appearance in Los Angeles!) at the Hollywood Bowl! A week before (people were sleeping on the street; honestly) I asked my mother to see if she could"get tickets" to the Beatles!!! (My mother was delighted I wanted to go to a "concert" she had no idea who the "Beatles "were!!

(actually; this was the 'good old days' before the media took over the world!)

anyway; "Gittleson Brothers" (still the best ticket agency in Los Angeles); had a "box" in the front row for 6!

So we went! My friends at "Mayfield" and I went! Good Grief!

Sheesh! What an experience! the Hollywood Bowl was FULL!!!

Everyone was screaming so loud we could barely hear them! Except we were so close we could; actually hear them!

It was one of the "peak experiences" of my life!!
their hair was major! They threw it back and forth......the movement of their hair was a big part of their appeal! HUGE! But their music was completely captivating......and it is the reason it is still today!!

We had no "hindsight"! at the time.......I continue to feel so lucky to have been right there!

Thanks to my darling mother!!

They took my "breath away!!" Honestly! the "charisma" was palpable......even though I was only very young!!!!

What fun! and my darling mother was so thrilled that I wanted to go to a "concert"!!

Happy Valentine's to you , too! You weren't born in 1964!! or was it 1963? All I know is.......I was there; and I thank my very cool mother every day! For this; and many other things!!

Lost in Provence said...

Isn't she exquisite in this? And the other one isn't so bad either! ;à

Lost in Provence said...

Oh my Penelope!!! I love this story!!! I believe that you should retell it on your blog. What an INCREDIBLE experience!

Lost in Provence said...

Thank you so very much everyone for these amazing comments!!! I feel so lucky!

teamgloria said...

When we buy a (modest and elegant) house in the hills we will ask you Very Politely if you will let us Commission an artwork so we can install your cloud pictures on a plasma screen and watch France from here.

Lost in Provence said...

Now that is a commission that I would be delighted to accept. Certainly in knowing that in doing so, it meant that you had achieved the success that you so rightly deserve...

PS: Love those pink blossoms waving in the last photo ... and I just noticed that they are heart-shaped!
