a kind light*

"Your soul has been through a great storm,
but all is not lost,
a kind light is coming soon,
to bring you hope & life.

You can rest now and wait...".

~ Jen Lemen

This quote was sent to me as a gift by a dear friend on a day when my heart was breaking. It now sits on my desk for me to see each and every day.

As the week ends and weekend begins, I would love the chance to help sooth a broken heart out there, just as mine was soothed by these gentle, reassuring words.

There is something so absolutely freeing about the permission to rest.

Would you be willing to share how you achieve the beautiful, antique effect to your photos...? They are stunning. (You can email to me if you'd prefer: bnadine@gmail.com).

I wish you a weekend of rest and slow smiles that last hours.

I visit often, but have never commented. I find your writing very concise yet overflowing with beauty that touches my soul. You have a gift that allows you to touch the rest of us with words we might not have been able to find on our own, but are there. You are inspiration to so many. Thank you for realizing your gifts and for sharing them with the world.

I don't think you totally and completely understand that you heal people with your words , wisdom and deep personal insight all the time. You are a healer and an amazing woman.

I can't thank you enough for posting this beautiful and much needed thought. The timing couldn't be better as I sit here with a broken heart. The resting and waiting is exactly what I need to do now...and just let life "be." Thank you for your always beautiful and thought-provoking posts and photography.

Oh Bohogirl...
how many a time
have your words,
your smile,
your soft and tender eyes,
your touch through the pages,
comforted my heart...
my soul.
I love you xx
