that's right, i'm in heaven


suzani is the common term for embroidered pieces that have been produced for hundreds of years by women in central asian countries.

in our world of machine made, this hand made form survives for now mainly in uzbekistan.

 i feel lucky to own one of these lovely pieces of my own. 

there's a link for a great seller i've used on ebay who ships direct from uzbekistan, a unique piece to decorate with, or even better 

... a cool gift !

this isn’t exactly walden pond


this is just a little peyton place


all the very best of us string ourselves up for love

i carry your heart with me

i carry it in my heart

i am never without it anywhere

i go you where you go, my dear; and whatever is done

by only me is your doing, my darling

i fear no fate for you are my fate, my sweet i want

no world for beautiful you are my world, my true

and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant

and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows

here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud

and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows

higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide

and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart

i carry it in my heart
