sharing the love with... jennifée

Cliché in red
cliché in red by jennifée  

Some have won a wild delight,
By daring wilder sorrow;
Could I gain thy love tonight,
I'd hazard death tomorrow.

-- From the poem Passion by Charlotte Brontë

Clichéd? Over-the-top? Cheesy? Oh yes. The above quote and photo can be accused of all these things and more, but it doesn't matter. Sometimes life is dark and grey, and seems to consist of an endless sequence of ordinary days, and then I take some time away from everything else to treasure and celebrate everything passionate and colourful. And I don't mean romantic love only, but my love for photography, the ocean, putting words on a page, storytelling, life.

On the other hand, what sustains me through those ordinary days is the stillness of quiet love. The comfortable silences together. Coming home after a stressful day to a favourite meal ready on the table. The tattered pages of a beloved book, frequently re-read. Wade's photo speaks to me of that quiet love, the love that makes my shoulder muscles relax as I lean back and take in another slow sunset.

Thank you for reading my words, and a big thanks to muse Kat for asking me to write them.

Visit tomorrow. Suki will be sharing the love with her muse... Rosina.

With love from Jennifée
