    Enveloping

    “For what it’s worth: it’s never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. There’s no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.”
    F. Scott Fitzgerald  Eric Roth

    {Note: I did some research because I had received a number of questions about this quote. Apparently it has been attributed numerous times to Fitzgerald but it was actually from the screenplay to his short story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and should be properly attributed to the author of the screenplay, Eric Roth. Researched by an astute librarian.}

    I've always loved that quote/paragraph from F.Scott :D

    Wonderful quote - it's not surprising I think that is it Tammy? And I love your little birdhouse with it's little web - maybe faerie have spider pets to protect them from dangerous insects.

    I really needed to read that quote today. Yesterday was a tough day with my autistic son, and I've been having a bit of a pity party. After reading the words of the astute F. Scott Fitzgerald, I'm reminded it's up to me to make the best of this life. Thanks :)

    Oh, and I adore that little fairy house you have in your garden, it's so charming!

    That is the cutest fairy house ever. I am inspired to make something similar... although I'm not sure out of what! ;)

    What a beautiful passage. And beautiful fairy house!

    F. Scott is my favorite writer. I don't believe I had ever seen that quote before, though. Do you know if it was something he wrote to his daughter?

    As soon as I get a job, i'm getting one of those fairy houses! :)
