"Vignette" – Postcard

© All Rights Reserved
This week’s Soartful challenge was “Vignette” where the challenge site provided the background card image. The words are from the poem Mirage by Christina Rossetti.

What a beauty you have created here, Anne!

A beautiful postcard, Anne. Your colors are gorgeous.

Christina sounds quite low in this poem. Without hope there is nothing. I just read a wonderful, inspiring book about how when the unthinkably bad happened, the author was able to somehow get to the place of a "new normal". Not the normal he would wish for and had been living before, but the new normal of reality. With a changed attitude, his life was then again purposeful, even with his extreme disabilities.

Anne this is lovely. I love how you darkened the background and the red tint on the vignette gives a nice soft bit of color. Beautiful image, too. Thanks for being Soartful this week.
