I hold it true, whate’er befall;
I feel it, when I sorrow most;
‘Tis better to have loved and lost
Than never to have loved at all…

    I like your style, adding a portrait
    that is in itself a most excellent piece
    and yet you amplify this with these
    photographs… I like that idea 🙂

    Have a very sweet Tuesday Eclipse 🙂

    This is lovely. Yes, it is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all.

      I agree with the gold comment, because gold is soft like love should be … platinum is cold … olil is messy … diamonds are hard … it’s got to be gold, hmmm?
