Happy New Year!

Happy New Year’s greetings for 2016 to all of my dear friends and followers. I wish you a wonderful time as you celebrate at midnight the coming of a New Year with friends, family and loved ones. May your coming year be one of good health, happiness, love and peace.

As we say goodbye to this year with its terrible tragedies, bloodshed and sadness, I hope that you can look back and find some happy memories to sustain you. Now more than ever we must keep hope in our hearts that there may come a time when peace and tolerance will prevail. Thank you dear friends who have already left messages for me, your kindness touches my heart.

Love to all, Dianne xoxoxo

A White Blossom

A tiny moon as small and white as a single jasmine flower
Leans all alone above my window, on night's wintry bower,
Liquid as lime-tree blossom, soft as brilliant water or rain
She shines, the first white love of my youth, passionless and in vain.

I have read another version of this poem, with the last line ending thus...
She shines, the one white love of my youth, which all sin cannot stain. 

D.H. Lawrence   

D H Lawrence is a name well-known among lovers of poetry, but from time to time a classic is in order! The idea of a first love, one that becomes idealised and lives on in your heart forever on a pedestal, is a universal concept that Lawrence sums up splendidly with “the one white love of my youth, which all sin cannot stain.”

In Solidarity Against Terrorism

The sails of the Sydney Opera House, one of many icons in Australia are illuminated with the blue, white and red colours of the French national solidarity with France.
For all of my dear friends in France, my French friends and neighbours, my thoughts and prayers are with you.

Peace for Paris icon - Jean Julien

Australia's Parliament House lit in blue, white and red as a show of solidarity for the Paris terror attack victims.
