  • Carl Jung:

    There are as many nights as days, and the one is just as long as the other in the year’s course. Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word ‘happy’ would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness

  • this leaves me with a warm fuzzy feeling

    Hello everyone! Hope you had a lovely weekend — yes, the approach of Spring and artsy butterflies make for sunny thoughts . . .

    simply pink — thank you so much for bringing this issue to my attention — have just tried to link it as well, it get the same atom feed error. Here are some steps you could try . . .

    If you’re using a list or link list or text gadget in your blog sidebar, use the blog url:


    However, if you’re using the blog list gadget, because it searches for the blog’s feed address, the url will cause the page not to load, resulting in a broken link. Instead, when using the blog list gadget, input the blog feed address:

  • hi! i’ve been looking at your blog forever and i used to have it on my blog list, but recently changed my url name. i’ve re-added you to my list but now it redirects me to atom_feed_url? the only way i can read your blog now is if i google your blog name. don’t know why blogger won’t let me link to citified?
    i love your pictures!

  • beautiful! i love the butterflies.

  • i love the skirt in that 1st picture!

  • i know how you feel! i love the feeling that spring is coming to end all the dreary weather! (although in fairness this year there’s been quite a lot of beautiful, white snowfalls where i live)
