And like flowers in the fields, that make wonderful views, when we stand side-by-side in our wonderful hues.. We all make a beauty so wonderfully true.
We are special and different, and just the same, too!
So whenever you look at your beautiful skin, from your wiggling toes to your giggling grin... Think how lucky you are that the skin you live in, so beautifully holds the "You" who's within.

Petite pause avec Ovide, pour lire la dernière publication de Mark Twain parue aux éditions L’Oeil d’Or et vraiment très fort ce Mark Twain 😍 il aurait été mon écrivain héros s’il avait été de ce siècle, j’en suis persuadé. La préface de ce petit livre écrite en duo est juste très instructive et vraiment passionnante surtout pour moi qui ne connaissait pas ce qu’est un soliloque et encore moins l’histoire des massacres au Congo sous Léopold, et la satyre, l’ironie de Mark Twain met bien le doigt où cela fait réfléchir sur le passé mais aussi sur le présent, une lecture qui me semble juste indispensable comme tout Mark Twain #marktwain#lesoliloqueduroileopold#pamphlet#loeildor#lecture#bookstagram#book#livre#instalivre#lecturedumoment

"Viajar pode ser fatal para o preconceito, a intolerância e as ideias limitadas" Mark Twain.

This day in 1868, Christopher Latham Sholes was granted a patent for a typewriter. The American newspaper editor has been contended as one of the inventors of the first typewriters.
There have been patents registered by others for machines that could pass as a typewriter. But credit for the first modern version goes to Christopher Sholes, who lived in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The problem with his first machine was that the keyboard was arranged alphabetically, just as anyone would expect. But as operators learned to type at speed it was discovered that the metal arms bearing each character often became entangled.
Sholes studied the problem with his partner Amos Densmore and worked out which letters were most often used. They then put them as far apart as possible on a new keyboard, reducing the chance of clashing arms because they would come from opposite directions. And thus the “Qwerty” keyboard, still is use today, was born.
Fun fact :- Mark Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, published in 1876, is widely believed to be the first novel written on a typewriter.
Saturday morning...the windows are open and it is quiet in a home that is otherwise lively and loud. A vintage wicker bag holds a benediction of sorts. Turning within to reconcile what cannot be seen so that our home may become a comfort, a refuge and a reflection of its inhabitants.
Our goal for this home in Samuel Clemen’s words... “It had a heart and a soul,
and eyes to see with;
and approvals and solicitudes and deep sympathies;
it was of us,
and we were in its confidence and lived in its grace and in the peace of its benedictions.
We never came home from an absence that it’s face did not light up and speak out in eloquent welcome-
and we could not enter it unmoved.” #thisishome#simpleliving#simpleabundance#vintagewicker#marktwain#marktwainquote#southernliving#ivyandpalm
Every day is a new beginning. Every day has the chance to be the most beautiful yet - think of how many beautiful days lie ahead of us. It doesnt have to be a sunny day for it to be beautiful.
Dzień dobry, kochani 💕
U mnie jeszcze szybka kawa, może jeden rozdział książki i lecę do pracy, a później na urodziny 🎁
Przed chwilą wrzuciłam na skazanych recenzję "Żywiołów Lukrecji" i jest to odpracowanie mojego ostatniego egzemplarza recenzenckiego. Teraz tylko napiszę coś o "Jak rozpalić ognisko" i przez całe wakacje mam zamiar nadrabiać swoje książki 📚
“Travel is fatal...” - #marktwain The quote, which you should search and read the rest of, was told to me after watching the #worldcup with a diverse group of folks in #amman#jordan
We are the masters of our future... even if we aren’t of the World Cup 😋🤙🏼🌍
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do then by the ones that you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbour. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain.
@ywamkona, thank you for giving me this opportunity to explore missions, to explore PNG and to discover who I am and where I come from. 🇵🇬 #ywam#outreach#png#westnewbritian#pukpuk#marktwain
