A treasure somewhere buried

"The tender friendships one gives up, on parting, leave their bite on the heart, but also a curious feeling of a treasure somewhere buried."

--Antoine de Saint-Exupery

*This painting is by Dante Gabriel Rossetti and is entitled "The First Anniversary of the Death of Beatrice."


  1. Can you imagine how wonderful it would be to live in a picture like that?

  2. It is amazing, isn't it? If you click on it, you can see a larger version with more detail. Oh, to be in Italy!
