Splash du Jour: Wednesday

This pause in time, within time ... When did I first experience the exquisite sense of surrender that is only possible with another person? The peace of mind one experiences on one's own, one's certainty of self in the serenity of solitude, are nothing in comparison to the release and openness and fluency one shares with another, in close companionship...
-- Muriel Barbery, The Elegance of the Hedgehog --



Have a great Wednesday!
