All You Need Is Love . . .
Good song - but I think while you need love - it's not all you need.
I put my grandson to bed at night - it is my FAVORITE part of the day. We say our prayers and then I sing songs to him - we have a series of 10. Then we turn his 'sounds' on - it is the rain forest. At first he can't hear them. Then I tell him to be quiet and the sounds will get louder.
He said, "I get it - when we lay down our ear is covered and we can't hear it until the other ear adjusts." Is this smart or what?
I received this quote - "The quieter you become the more you can hear." - Baba Ram Dass
And then I received this one. "Nobody sees a flower, really--it is so small we haven't time, and to see takes time." - Georgia O'Keefe
So life takes love, silence to listen, taking time to see, and what else? Maybe these things are what love is about - or what love needs to have to take place. Thinking of love today.
Maureen O'Sullivan - Happy Birthday - wikipedia
O'Sullivan was born in Boyle, County Roscommon, Ireland, the daughter of Mary Lovatt and Charles Joseph O'Sullivan, an officer in The Connaught Rangers who served in The Great War.
She attended a convent school in Dublin, then the Convent of the Sacred Heart at Roehampton in London (now Woldingham School). One of her classmates there was Vivien Leigh. After attending finishing school in France, O'Sullivan returned to Dublin and began working with the poor.
She met a producer and the rest was history.
She was Mia Farrows mother - I didn't know that...
