Missing Perfection

Loving the non-existent symmetry!
Missing perfection? Isn’t that the point? Pleasing perfection… a dangerous game and one not to be entertained. Play with fire? And you get burnt, and while I love the smell of BBQ’s, some singes are best left to one side, way down memory lane, where they slowly meld into the milieu of life, evaporating like a simmering pot - sometimes adding character.
Batman beware! There's another superhero in town;-)
Silver shells bring soulless wells! 
This superheros dream caught my attention,
Seconds later, love was my ascension!

The greatest gift of all is LOVE, and that is the nearest to perfection I know. More than perfect, for it is unquantifiable, immeasurable and a feeling that holds such force, we’d travel the world to find it, beyond our hearts consciousness, zooming to the moon and back if needs be;-) Though often it's all around us.

Today I’m thankful for friendship. My lovely friend Charisse gave me a gift, in the form of a rainbow  pastel coloured tea set. 
Friendship and tea drinking go well together - like milk and honey, salt and pepper, popcorn and films, bbq’s and sunshine, hellos and goodbyes, sunshine and smiles.

I love Fridays too! For that Friday go go goji berry feeling, try my beautiful figtastic oatilicious treats. Made in minutes they’ll turn moments of chatter into harmonious melodies, much like this song.

BBQ at the lovely Fergies
Special tip - Eat with great company and the food will taste considerably better.

  3. These red wonders help protect our DNA, and have the power to repair damaged cells! Beat that Batman;-)
  4. Goji berries give us that loving feeling too! 
  5. And they accelerate healing on all levels, so you'll be blooming from within.
  6. Better than carrots, they protect against muscular degeneration, the world will look more inviting!
