Hope Is The Thing With Feathers ...

Image via Pinterest

Hope is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops - at all - 

And sweetest - in the Gale - is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -

I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet - never - in Extremity,
It asked a crumb - of me.

~ Emily Dickinson

The Lark Ascending …...

RIP Goodfella ….

Ah…. The morning troll of Ebay. I  found something with such little effort I just knew I had to share.  Remember the 1990 award winning film " Goodfellas", starring  Joe Pesci and Ray Liotta as (Henry Hill), a  mafioso turned informant ? Here is the trailer if you need to jar your memory.

 The movie " Goodfellas" has always been a personal  favorite. I must admit I could never make it through the movie without cringing at all of the gory mafia hits all while craving home cooked Italian food at the same time.. So many of the scenes had the characters slicing garlic, stirring sauce, making meatballs all while doing jail time.

Well, it turns out Henry Hill was quite the artist.  To my surprise in researching Henry's art, Henry passed away the day after his 69th birthday just recently  ( June 11, 1943 ~ June 12, 2012) . I believe, like most of us, that when we pass  we hope we can leave this life with something memorable about our  lives lived here on Earth. No doubt Henry had lived a notorious life, but I will assume he made peace at the end. With that said, Henry's art will live on for us to ponder, and for him to be remembered. ~ Nadia

A toasty  98 degrees here in Pennsylvania today.  Summer  starting with a vengeance. Hoping my hanging baskets can hang on ( no pun intended) until a little cool front heads in this weekend. So,  I guess grab something cold to drink , and enjoy the longest day of the year… Happy Summer ! ~ Nadia

Fernbrook …..

  Sometimes you just find the perfect old home…. the one that makes your heart sing and feel warm inside. This lovely  Queen Anne Victorian home in Wyncote, Pennsylvania  has inspired me  since the first time I ever layed my eyes upon it. From the warm, perfectly painted clapboard exterior, to the woodwork and layout with all of it's little nooks and crannies…. This home has soul. The soul of those who lived in it over the years and gave it the love and  history, and the soul of the current owners whose evidence of great  care  has allowed it to be so beatifully mainted still today. For more details on this lovely warm soul of a home and listing information,  click  HERE . ~ Nadia
