This is a wonderful choice of photo for this quote. The deep magenta flower calls to me--I love the deeper colors!

Beautiful blooms, wonderful words.

Loved your Easter post - so appropriate ! And all the items you gave thanks for - above all, grace !

It is a lovely concept, but I think that there is more interaction then rilke counted on. In a perfect world, that might be the definition of love, yes. I think so. Gorgeous image, Leslie.
