People of different religions and cultures live side by side in almost every part of the world... We can reach out and love what we are, without hating what we are not. We can thrive in our own tradition, even as we learn from others, and come to respect their teachings. - Kofi Annan
"I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling... I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit." from The open mind
"The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater our own sense of well-being becomes. Cultivating a close, warm-hearted feeling for others automatically puts the mind at ease. It is the ultimate source of success of life."
Welcome to my vintage life where I am living my dream renovating an old stone villa in the hills of Grasse, spending my time scouring the local flea-markets finding all things old, vintage and shabby to give this little old house a soul.
Here is a snap shop of my garden where I have big plans to grow as much home grown produce as possible, a place where the children can learn and experience hand's on where their food is coming from and I can learn to live with the land.
