Delicacy is much for me, such a big part of my every day and existence …. here is some I love and that delights me …. and that I cherish.
“It’s all in the crack”
Delicate is for me is a Magnum ice cream on a hot summer day.
“It is almost impossible to watch a sunset and not dream.”
Is there anything more delicate than a magical sunset by the ocean????? This I had in Dubai 2 months ago.
“If feathers don’t ruffle, nothing flies.”
And I would say that a feather are one of the most delicate things there is that we can lift and touch.
“Silk does for the body what diamonds do for the hand.”
Oscar de la Renta
There is nothing more delicate against the skin than real silk. This is my pink summer silk dress.
“The finest qualities of our nature, like the bloom on fruits,
can be preserved only by the most delicate handling.”
Henry David Thoreau
… and of course what nature brings and gives us …. a little blue flower (flax) is nearly the ultimate.
“Take time to be a butterfly.”
Children and butterflies-Vienna ,April 2018
“Health is the greatest gift, contentment the greatest wealth,
faithfulness the best relationship.”
After my cancer journey in 2010 … I must say my health is very delicate and I still become worried and scared when my body behaves strangely.
“Even if you go far away, I’ll be by your side”
We all know how delicate love is. This newlywed happy couple I meet in the Shukkei-en Park, which is a historic garden in Hiroshima … during their photo shooting – April 2015
AND music!!!!! André Rieu & His Johann Strauss Orchestra concert at Malmö Arena – January 2014
Here I have chosen one of the most delicate pieces of music I know “Gabriel’s Oboe” by Ennio Morricone, one of the biggest film scores ever (in my book)… “The Mission” in 1986. Here performed by André Rieu & His Johann Strauss Orchestra. Ennio Morricone is in my ears the biggest soundtrack composer ever and Hans Zimmer comes right behind him. I’m a big fan of good film scores … the composers behind them is today’s classical composers.
P.S. Do you know that an egg is one of the most delicate things we can feel against our cheek???!! Try it!!! That I found out a lifetime ago in junior school.
