THE GEM 29 JULY 2017 : “Longevity-and sanity. Eccentric old ladies on Harleys I can deal with.” ― Alison Larkin, The English American.

THE GEM 25 JULY 2017 : You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.

But ah, the days that string their pearls

across our shoulders, warmly rest

their sundrop auras…these we clasp

in awe, aware that we are blest.
