How appropriate that the photos I selected to illustrate “treasure” are not the best quality photographs, but rather snapped on the fly (or, should I say, “on the ski”) with my phone this weekend. I had another post almost completed for this week’s challenge, but it became apparent to me on a relaxing ski through the woods with good friends, as the fluffy flakes added a fresh layer, that I was enjoying one of life’s best treasures — good friendship (made even better by the simultaneous enjoyment of the beauty of the outdoors). The best treasures are, indeed, treasures of the heart.
“It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” ~ Antoine de Saint-Exupéry
“I shall ask into my shell only those friends with whom I can be completely honest. I find I am shedding hypocrisy in human relationships. What a rest that will be. The most exhausting thing in life, I have discovered, is being insincere.” ~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
“Kindred spirits are not so scarce as I used to think. It’s splendid to find out there are so many of them in the world.” ~ L.M. Montgomery
