Hot Dance

The challenge in The Three Muses this week is SOME LIKE IT HOT - WARM COLORS.  I can't think in "Some Like it Hot" without traveling through cinema. As I went for Marilyn here and here, this time my choice was Cyd  Charisse, who could heat up any musical, even in censored 1950s.

Background: Pink Lotty; sheet music: fred the cow stock (dA); texture: Crowabout Studio.

Be like a postage stamp. Stick to one thing until you get there.

The challenge in The Three Muses is POSTAGE STAMPS. I've made each one of these stamps by recycling a digital collage I've previously created for Digitalmania

In this weather, in this gale, in this windy storm,
they rest as if in their mother's house:
frightened by no storm,
sheltered by the Hand of God.

Take a Word asked for CHILDHOOD and my twisted mind made ​​me wonder that losing a child is the most unbearable pain. It seems that in some way these children remain as kids forever, trapped in an eternal childhood. Then I was taken to Kindertotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children) composed by Gustav Mahler. The words of the songs are poems by Friedrich Rückert. The original Kindertotenlieder were a group of 428 poems written by Rückert in reaction to the illness and death of two of his children. Mahler selected five of Rückert's poems. It's very beautiful. You can listen to it here.

Keep your inner peace

Never be in a hurry; do everything quietly and in a calm spirit. 
Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.
Saint Francis de Sales

Hello! POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS is the theme in The Three Muses. I went for keeping the inner peace as this is something really hard to me.
