The Pensive Bride

This vintage Bridal Portrait is just too lovely!
c 1920s-1930s

She looks like she is thinking deeply about life....and the love that will soon be her husband.

Let all thy joys be as the month of May
And all thy days be as marriage Day
Let sorrow, sickness and a troubled mind
Be stranger to thee.
To a Bride: Francis Quarles, 1635.

Its a rainy day & I'm waiting for my rainbow

1920s vintage photo of a lovely girl. who, in my opinion, looks like shes waiting for a rainbow... a bit of color, a splash of life, something exciting. She is all dressed up with no where to go...

"The best thing about a storm is the rainbow that appears at the end of it.

Its been raining a lot here.
Dreary days.
Cloudy skies.
And now, very green grass.

Sometimes life is filled with little storms.
Lightning that illuminates our situations.
Thunder that wakes us from our sleep.
And rain drops, like hail, that pound at our window sill.

There is something so beautiful about the rain.
It washes away the dirt and quenches our deepest thirsts.
Rain, like water, fills.

Its been raining a lot.
For what feels like months.
And only just today did I see a rainbow in the sky.
A full half circle.
Then, the blue sky invaded pushing the gray away."

It ain't over till the fat lady sings!

This Vintage 1950s Photo was taken by photographer Allan J. Delay. I feature a lot of his collection on my ebay store. For some reason, I have really begun to like 1950s Black & White photos...and am on the search for more!

Today I realized that with life its not over until the fat lady sings! Sometimes we cant see how everything will work out, or how all the little pieces will come together.
LIFE is still happening to us, and we can't always see the larger picture....

The phrase "It ain't over 'til the fat lady sings" is a proverb essentially meaning that one should not assume the outcome of some activity (frequently a sports game) until it has actually finished.

Case in point the Boston Celtics vs. the favored Chicago Bulls.
After many overtimes & a lengthy few games, the Celtics eventually won out against the Bulls.
Too bad. I was really hoping the Bulls would win..
