Defintions of love

Valentines day make me think of love and what it actually is. The webster dictionary defines love as:

love  (lŭv)


1. A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
2. A feeling of intense desire and attraction toward a person with whom one is disposed to make a pair; the emotion of sex and romance.


a. Sexual passion.
b. Sexual intercourse.
c. A love affair.
4. An intense emotional attachment, as for a pet or treasured object.
5. A person who is the object of deep or intense affection or attraction; beloved. Often used as a term of endearment.
6. An expression of one’s affection: Send him my love.


a. A strong predilection or enthusiasm: a love of language.
b. The object of such an enthusiasm: The outdoors is her greatest love.
8. Love Mythology Eros or Cupid.
9. often Love Christianity Charity.
10. Sports A zero score in tennis.
For me the definition is best summed up by my parents.
63 years ago on Feb 14 my Mum and Dad married. From that came 6 children, many grandchildren (sorry too many to count) and 4 and half great-grandchildren. WOW! Amazing legacy. Congratulations Mum and Dad – we all love you and thank you for every minute of our lives.

Spring is here (well Autumn Actually)

In the northern hemisphere spring has arrived. Here in Australia it is the end of summer, which is a shame as it has been very wet and no real warm weather. So I’m not ready for autumn (fall).

However I realize my main market is the northern hemisphere , the US to be precise. And you will be looking forward to spring.

So to celebrate here is a pretty spring design of cherry blossoms. A painting I did this time last year:

Photo of Baby Rainbow Lorikeets

I took these photos of two cute baby rainbow lorikeets after the rain. They landed on my deck and just started preening themselves. They seemed to be totally unaware of me. I felt it was a rare privilege to watch them and even rarer to be able to take these photos:

These photos were one of my inspirations to start up my Zazzle website Clareville and one of the very first series of designs I put on gifts.

Click here to look or click on the photos. On some gifts I was able to put a close-up of the feathers creating a wonderful colorful texture.

I would love to know your thoughts, so please comment below.
