sparkling


When I'm 75 I want to wear sparkles on my cheeks and earlobes like this woman (sartorialist).

I'm going up to Molly's house to work in the garden this afternoon.  It's "...an epic garden with wicked straight rows....from which they grew much of their own food."

Here's another little bit about Molly: "She was sparkling, magical and mythical, feisty, courageous, outrageous, humble, intrepid, insatiably curious, meticulous, and dauntless...she possessed an impeccable sense of style and grace."


(Sage- if you read this I was so happy to realize who you are!  When I first read a comment of yours on my blog I said to myself..."Leslie has a daughter named Sage in Maine but could this be her??"  Crazy small world.  I remember you when you were a small girl.  I hope to see you at the service on Saturday.)

Much love,
L

It is so sad about your friend. I left a comment about your post about her the other day, but since reading your newer posts, I feel how sad it must be for you. I don't know what I would do if I lost one of my best friends. I hope things will get better for you and Molly's family. I've lost many family members, including my father, who died several years ago. I miss him so much, even though we weren't as close as I wish we could have been, but I think of him so often and even talk to him sometimes, spirit to spirit. I believe we can still communicate with our loved ones when they are gone from us, because they are really not gone, but just in another place; a much more beautiful, lovely and happy place, I am sure. God bless you for your appreciation of Molly. It sounds like she was a truely wonderful person, (and still is).

Be with Molly today in her garden...
