Summer

Quote for today on generous loving

"Bell must have seen this dozens of times, Miles guessed, but the herm was surely as entraced as any newcomer. It wasn't just a lover's smile that illuminated Bel's eyes. Yes. You would not be loving her properly if you did not also love her improvident, lavish, spendthrift excellence. No jealous lover, greedy and selfish, could hoard it all; it had to be poured forth upon the world, or burst its wellspring."

-- a reflection on Nicol's dulcimer performance during the ballet in Diplomatic Immunity, by Lois McMaster Bujold
