Whilst it is perfectly acceptable to wear diamonds on our neck, and I begrudge no one for doing so – I am with Emma Goldman, in that there is much beauty to be found in the simple.

For some, it is the taste of rich, dark chocolate and a full bodied red after a hard day’s work. Maybe it is the sweet pop of cherries bursting in our mouths on a long, hot summers day? Or the soft podgy padding of an infant’s hand reminding us of the sweetness of innocence?

Whatever our ‘roses on the table’ may be, may we revere and savour the simple, and remember that we needn’t wear diamonds on our necks to experience the richness of life.

In love and light,
