The true art of love is knowing when saying nothing at all speaks louder than any words to express your deepest feelings.

Welcome and thank you for looking at my profile.
This is the former account of Alison Thurston who passed away on June 8th 2013. As was her wishes I have taken over renamed her account and will continue to share a mix of her own words from her writings of the last 17 years, along with my own words, photos and a little fun too. All of the motivational and inspirational quotes are taken from Ali's own journal. Why not check out Ali's memorial community here or take a look at all of the posts dedicated #ForAli
Ali and I shared our belief in peace and kindness and I have taken on her account with the promise I made to keep her message and memory alive.

About 9 weeks ago For those we love, for those we miss, we hold them in our heart always. For the longest time.......

If you said goodbye to me tonight 
There would still be music left to write
What else could I do, I'm so inspired by you 
That hasn't happened for the longest time

Once I thought my innocence was gone 
Now I know that happiness goes on 
That's where you found me, when you put your arms around me 
I haven't been there for the longest time

I don't care what consequence it brings 
I have been a fool for lesser things 
I want you so bad, I think you ought to know that 
I intend to hold you for the longest time
Billy Joel, the longest time (with a bit of adjusting by me!)

A huge thank you to +Claire Mae-Jennings for looking after this account for so long. You will always be a star in my life, a gentle shining light who brings peace and calm in stormy times.


About 8 weeks ago Now and then in life, love catches you unawares, illuminating the dark corners of your mind, and filling them with radiance. Once in awhile you are faced with a beauty and a joy that takes your soul, all unprepared, by assault.
Jennifer Lee/Worth

This is the last of my night by Rudyard lake photos. Hoping that love and music fill your heart and mind, bring peace and happiness in everything you do.

Music expresses that which cannot be said and on which it is impossible to be silent.
Victor Hugo

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.
Lao Tzu


About 7 weeks ago What sunshine is to flowers, smiles are to humanity. These are but trifles, to be sure; but scattered along life's pathway, the good they do is inconceivable.
Joseph Addison

What ever your day brings, what ever life brings you, there are always flowers to brighten, there are always ways and reasons to smile. Always try to find them, but more importantly, always try to be the reason for someone else's smile.

Have a happy, smiling and love filled day everyone. These crocus grow wild all around here, as spring comes, smiles grow and flowers bloom into their full beauty.

About 8 weeks ago There is a sacredness in tears. They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love.
Washington Irving

Snowdrops flower, showing that spring is here. With their dew drops, they resemble tears, showing that even when tears have fallen through a hard winter, spring and seasons bring strength, happy memories, change, hope and add their simple beauty to the moments in each and every day.


About 4 weeks ago Just a smile for #Caturday :-)
About 6 weeks ago "Perfection is not just about control. It's also about letting go."
(from The Black Swan)

Follow your heart, your dreams, let go and find your perfect moments.

About 5 weeks ago "When two hearts meet, when they are truly meant to be together, they light up your life, they add colour, they create beauty itself. They change the world in the most exciting, dramatic way by gently whispering that we are together, we have each other, we have love."

Love follows, that wherever you are, however much you miss someone, there is always love. Hold on to it, however hard your days become, because sometimes it is all you have to help you through.
