Carolyn, 36, INFP. Reader, daydreamer, inveterate journaler. Loves books, flowers, period dramas, my husband & my cat.

Can words go straight to the heart? Is this possible? Can words be as direct as the scent of roses? A man calls from a street corner and I turn my head to the voice as I would turn to the fragrance of a climbing rose, tangled through an arbour.
~ The Lost Garden, Helen Humphreys
