I don't want to miss the opportunity to wish all the ladies in my life a very Merry International Womens' Day. Thanks for all the gentleness, warmth, beauty and grace you bring to my life.
I suppose we are all glad that the canons of feminine beauty have moved on since the ninth century BC ...
"My Lady is beautiful, beautiful beyond compare; so beautiful that when one has seen her once, one would wish to die so as to see her again; so beautiful that when one has seen her, one can no longer love anything earthly." St Bernadette.
