Hearts – My Favorite Shape

The most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. – Helen Keller

Widely recognized as a symbol for love, affection and caring, the heart shape has always been a shape I have found endearing. How this shape got to be associated with all these good things is somewhat of a mystery and its origins and history has many potential stories. Varied theories associated with the origin of the heart shape abound. Today it is one of the most used emojies.

About Me

Life is precious, capture its beauty. I am lucky to have a loving family, and wonderful friends. Like everyone, I have good days and bad days, happy days and sad days, patient days and crabby days, beautiful days and ugly days, etc. I try to “hold the bright side up” as much as I can because it makes me feel better, and I think it helps others feel better too. I am so far from perfect, but I try to be kind and respectful. I truly believe that life is precious and that there are so many extraordinary ordinary people and moments in life. I want to share and celebrate the “extraordinary ordinary” through my writing and photography.
