Hope..perches in the soul

I picked up Glass magazine yesterday
for the flight home and could not put it down.
Have you read it?
Stunning photography, thoughful content,
truly inspiring.

Loved this...

The road to Hoi An, Vietnam


  1. I love the last image. Beautiful.

    Paris next? Oh, Jeanne, the places you'll go.

  2. I have so enjoyed following you on your travels. I look forward to hearing of Paris. Safe travels. Bonnie

  3. Paris ... that's great. I am sure it looks lovely in Spring. Loved your adventures in Vietnam and Hong Kong.

  4. Jeanne, I'm sorry, I'm sorry but my computer's been a disaster. Almost pulled out of the A-Z Challenge. Geek Squad at Best Buy couldn't figure out why it was acting up. They thought I knew the upgrade for Outlook created changes. Neighbor Kyle relayed the news (as he's a geek who was having problems). Anyway, all's straightened out (er, I'm a bit more savvy now), but I lost your e-mail in the process, but not before I followed your instructions and inserted the Follow by E-mail gadget. Thanks! I'd wondered how to do that. Can you e-mail me via it to see if it works???

    You've been on my mind lots. Wondering how you're doing in that humid land. But more later. There's a market in Saigon I think you'd love (as HCM City is further out). Lots of HUGS, Kittie

  5. I have not seen Glass, but I will check it out. I will be in France for a couple of weeks... so if I see you I will say hello!

  6. Jeanne I have just pinned your first image with the words "Do you know that feeling when you find something just so perfect? This little piece does it for me!!!!!!"
    It has such a resonance that I have to have it is my life all the time. Sublime!!!!! xx

  7. Oh Jeanne, that first photo is indeed sublime - Jules nailed it. I have the full quotation in a print on my wall - you can see it here (http://www.lifeonplanetbaby.com/2012/04/how-we-celebrated-easter-2012-on-planet.html). I am loving your tour - you are a fabulous tourguide! J x

  8. Married to an alcoholic for 30 years.

    Learned I had to put my hope for him with G*d. Keeping hope for him was taking me down.

    Divorce was final last Dec.

    Zero fear it was the right thing to do. Odd, it was the fear keeping me for 30 years.

    Garden & Be Well, XO Tara

    1. Hope springs eternal Tara, it sounds like you have made all the right choices... x

  9. Jeanne,

    Welcome home!!! I have loved every minute of your travels and cannot wait to be an arm chair traveler on the next adventure.

    Paris is one of my favorite places in the world, and I am sure that you have gotten many tips for places to go but if you can take a few more I will email them to you, a fe of my favorites!

    Have a wonderful week! Elizabeth

    I like your photo of the field with a woman wearing a local hat.

  13. Oh, Jeanne, but your beautiful comment. My youngest sister (big age difference) and Wendy were like daughters. Much earlier today I sensed Wendy's spirit near but thought maybe I was wishing it so. After hub left for North Carolina), I checked my blog. When I read your comment, I felt a tingling sense of peace. Oh, what a treasure, yes, you knew. Thank you, Jeanne, for so much. Hugs!

  14. Hello Jeanne,

    How are you? Are you settled back home? When are you leaving to PAris? I will send you an email today with some suggestions.

    I cannot remember if I asked but how is your chaise coming along? When will you be able to show off your travel chair?

    Have a great day! Elizabeth

    1. Hi Elizabeth..settling in back home has taken longer than I thought. :) Off to Paris next week...would love suggestions...you are very kind. My travelling chaise arrives Saturday morning! :)
