The Rest was Left Up to Nature, by Beverly Hicks Burch

“The best way to travel…is in a balloon. In a balloon, you can decide only when to start, and usually when to stop. The rest is left entirely up to nature.” ~ William Pene de Bois, The Twenty One Balloons ~ I love the month of October – for many reasons. The weather turns cooler,… Continue reading The Rest was Left Up to Nature, by Beverly Hicks Burch

When Love Hurts–Reblogged, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Mrs. Palfrey at the Claremont, by Beverly Hicks Burch

Yes, I have very eclectic taste in films and movies! Sometimes when I tell Tall and Handsome I have a new English movie I want him to watch his eyes glaze and his jaw clinches...but he's aways a very good sport.
