in silence sealed

The human heart has hidden treasures,
In secret kept, in silence sealed.

The human heart has hidden treasures. In secret kept, in silence sealed and in human feelings revealed... I would add!

Beautiful poem and picture. I can almost smell the sea.

Indigo said...

Wonderful introspective quote dear friend. I love this picture of you, lost in the view, contemplating life. (Hugs)Indigo

That quote hit me right between the eyes this morning. Thanks for sharing.
BTW, thank you for stopping by my blog. I am so happy you enjoyed my photography.

Perfect together.

Dear Lydia~ You are absolutely entitled to the privacy of your interior life. However, if there's anything you want to share, you can count on my--and many others' I'm sure--support. Your face is beautiful in profile and repose. xxox

Great picture ;)

Darlene said...

You do indeed have a beautiful profile. I love the photo and the quote.

Hi Lydia,
What a beautiful post and I love your blog! I received a message that you enjoy the musichouse image and I would love to send you one so please contact me when you have a moment, my email is I look forward to hearing from you. Warmest regards, Valerie Walsh

@Phivos- You expanded upon Charlotte Bronte's quote! Really marvelous and something to think about, too.

@Belette- Thank you. I've missed the sound of it every night since I was there. And it was especially "ocean-y" smelling that week due to some strange warm front.

@Indigo- I like the quote too. When I read it I thought I'd love to know what was in Bronte's mind when she penned it.

@Julie- Your blog is a great one and so deserving of Blog of Note. I appreciate your visit. :)

@English Rider- Thank you, and thanks for being here.

@naomi- Yea! A visit from you! This might mean that you are feeling more settled in your new life in Portland. (Batten down the hatches for the next few days...the winds are supposed to be strong.)

@Margaret- Your comments were amazing and meant so much! A lot of food for thought: the interior life, what to keep, what to share - but I do trust my process and the goodness of your heart (and of other blogging friends).

@Tabitha- Thank you. In the past year or so any photo that Michael has taken of me is not just not-good, but really awful. I had one of them as my profile shot just prior to the current one (also a digital self-portrait). I had a scowl because he was telling me where and how to stand. I don't know why I put it on my blog for a few months, as I really hated it!

@Darlene- Wow, why thank you! And I like the quote too, enough to memorize it.

@Valerie- What a great surprise to have a comment here from you! I love the musichouse image and will most definitely contact you about it. Your art is truly unique and special, a "cut above" as they say!
Thank you for your message.

A picture says a thousand words also... :-)

Wayfaring Wanderer said...

You sure seem like an open book to me :D

Hattie said...

Chiming in late. Although I live over Hilo Bay I still miss the Oregon coast.

Nancy said...

Love that! The picture matches the words perfectly.

I meant to email you about D Reynolds. He was the vice principal at Galena for at least most of the years my two daughters went there. He knew some friends of mine that went to Wooster. I wonder if we know mutual people?

Melinda said...

What an amazing quote. This just went in my list. Again, THANK YOU, Lydia!


M Riyadh Sharif said...

Beautiful words!! I like this picture a lot! :)

Lydia said...

@the watercats- Yes, that happens!

@Wayfaring Wanderer- Pretty much. So open, in fact, that I'll admit to relating to the quote.

@Hattie- Wish I knew Hilo so that I too could have a comparison. (Wayfaring Wanderer - above your comment - spent her birthday in Hawaii and has posted lovely photos of the trip at her blog.)

@Nancy- I thought they were a match, too.
We absolutely must email about the synchronicity of certain events in our lives!

@Melinda- It's a great one, and I wonder why I hadn't heard it before...

@Riyadh- I agree about the quote and am glad you like the photo. :)

Lydia- this is beautiful...I missed seeing this earlier as we out of the country when you posted this. Such lovely words. and I love the photo of you.

Lydia said...

Kathe~ What a surprise to have a comment on this at the end of 2011. I am thrilled it is from you and appreciated it so much. Happy Holidays!
