a : marked by the imaginative or emotional appeal of what is heroic, adventurous, remote, mysterious, or idealized
I’m about as romantic a person as there is. I love flowers, handwritten notes, rainy days, tea, dancing, pretty dresses, adventure, travel, exploring, candlelight. I firmly believe that if we look around the world there is so much beauty and artistry.
But sometimes we must create the beauty — the romance! I think there are many things we can do — and I think I may even go so far as say we should do — to enrich our lives and the lives of all those around us by living beautiful lives and creating beauty and romance around us.
This is my attempt at sharing and creating the beauty and romance of everyday life whether we live in a small house in America, or if we are traveling across the globe.
There is such a place as fairyland – but only children can find the way to it.
And they do not know that it is fairyland until they have grown so old that they forget the way. One bitter day, when they seek it and cannot find it, they realize what they have lost; and that is the tragedy of life...
Henceforth they must dwell in the common light of common day. Only a few, who remain children at heart, can ever find that fair, lost path again; and blessed are they above mortals...
The world calls them its singers and poets and artists and story-tellers; but they are just people who have never forgotten the way to fairyland.
