Color me stupid.  
Forgiveness is the fragrance that the violet sheds on the heel that has crushed it.”

It could be the half bottle of cab I just drank, but...

Someone explain to me what this means?

Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
I feel:: confusedconfused

I've had a few daquiris, but I honestly haven't a clue.

Oh well. I've an 8 hour car ride tomorrow, plus plane ride on Tuesday to think on it.

Do you figure it means to forgive those that hurt you, showing a love for them that they don't deserve in the process?

Something like that?

Ugh, I'm brain dead. Again.

Aw, that's sweet, isn't it? I think it's basically a 'turn the other cheek' type thing.

And helllooooo! Missed you. Had a great time, been home for a couple of days trying to get over this stupid jet lag.

Hope you're well!

You're back in the USA!

Welcome home. :)

LOVE the icon, and the new layout for that matter. The colors are so soothing.

Yup. I'm home. Woo. Italy was beautiful. Breathtaking. Can't believe I'm back here in Utah. Coming home was good in most ways, but in others, man, what a let down.

I read your jam post last night on my phone while we were at the drive in and it made me laugh. I say go with your jam addiction. You could be addicted to Paolo like me. Your addiction is much healthier.

I imagine the scenery is a bit different, for sure.

Fruit and sugar is healthier than Paolo? I dunno... My jam isn't going to take me to exotic places.

And yeah, the other layout was too busy. It made me frown a lot.

The fragrance of a violet is a gift - something beautiful. It's given in return for something violent/hurtful - the petals have to be crushed in order to fully release their perfume.

Thus, to forgive is to give something beautiful in exchange for something ugly.

I think it's kind of a labored metaphor, but I'm pretty sure that's what it means.

Well, now, put that way it's sort of lovely, isn't it?

It's Mark Twain's. He did enjoy beating around the bush a bit before getting to the heart of the matter.

Yeah. I should have just waited for you to answer. *g*

So much easier to say, yeah, what she said.
Carrie Leigh: *pokes tongue*carrie_leigh on July 26th, 2010 03:00 am (UTC)
She's the smart one. You're the pretty one. I'm the...

one that makes obscene amounts of jam?

Someday, I swear, I'm going to get to be the pretty one.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on July 26th, 2010 03:29 am (UTC)
Okay. You could be the pretty one, but then who could be the smart one? I certainly can't pick up that slack. My brain has atrophied significantly since I last held a real job.

Maybe Celeste will be the smart one. She'll have to make the sacrifice for the good of the team.

We're all smart and pretty, of course. But, if I had to pick something special to just you, I'd say you're the one with the perfect hair.

Wow, I'm really loving this layout.
Carrie Leighcarrie_leigh on July 26th, 2010 03:04 am (UTC)
I know! Isn't it pretty? [Bad username: Scholars_layouts]. She's awesome.
seegrim: paolo articlesseegrim on July 26th, 2010 03:07 am (UTC)
I use her all the time. (That sounds bad). I've paid her to do a few layouts, too. She did the one for the daily paolo. The header, too. She rather rocks and is really affordable. AND, the best part? She does it in a few hours. :D

It's my goal to see you one day with really bad hair. Good friend, no?
Carrie Leigh: bitter lemonadecarrie_leigh on July 26th, 2010 03:12 am (UTC)

I don't look great right now. I washed it earlier and didn't do anything with it.
seegrim: i like youseegrim on July 26th, 2010 03:13 am (UTC)
Aha! I happen to think my hair's lovely at the moment. *g* See? You've made my day.

Thank you.

I like this one, but I'm always afraid to use it. :)

LOL! That's a good one. I know what you mean. I have a few like that.
