A little Josephine break...

Good morning all:)  It's been awhile since I've posted anything at all on Josephine and so I thought today's post would be perfect and timely.  My dear friend Matterhorn who hosts two excellent Monarchy blogs:  The Cross of Laeken and The Sword and the Sea sent me this wonderful youtube clip and I just had  to share with you.  Thanks Matterhorn!

I've tried adjusting the image (with some difficulty)- so for better viewing you can also watch it here:

Writing, Reviewing, History, Art and more...We're back!

Glad to be back after what seemed like a never ending roller-coaster that had life spinning in all kinds of directions.   Prayer is HUGE and I will never stop believing in miracles.  Health is everything; love is the most powerful tool, and, life is a blessing.

 As for reading...well, that sure did take close to last place in my realm of priorities.  Nonetheless, I did manage a couple of books and will be posting reviews soon.  Look out for one on Victoria, another Plaidy and an Angelique as well.
But I have to admit that not all things were  drenched in misery...I actually got away for three weeks this summer to my well-beloved Venice and the Veneto region (hope to post photos of that as well:)
I missed this place-  I hear my muse calling...Hey Josephine, I’m back!
But before all, there is one special Lady I want to give major credit and Thanks to...For anyone needing a special grace, I highly recommend this Lady, who's got the major connection in the Highest of places:
Thank you, Thank you Madonna di Monte Berico

Hugs to all and God Bless:)
