“Write it on your heart
that every day is the best day in the year…
This new day is too dear,
with its hopes and invitations,
to waste a moment on the yesterdays.”
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

I edited this image in Topaz Black and White Suite using adjustments in the classic black and white program and adding a diffusion edit to give the image a soft, dreamy, appearance of the feeling of adoration, which is one of the meanings of the Sunflower.
“You can’t look in the face of adoration and be cruel.” ~ Claudia Christian
“Lucid dreaming has considerable potential for promoting personal growth and self-development, enhancing self-confidence, improving mental and physical health, facilitating creative problem solving and helping you to progress on the path to self-mastery.” – Stephen LaBerge
“I love you, I’ve loved you for years and I’ll love you for years more. It’s not something I can fight, it’s not something I want to fight.” ― Somi Ekhasomhi, Always Yours
The red tulip means “Believe Me” and “Love Declared” in the Victorian Language of Flowers, thus the title of this image and the reason I selected it for Valentine’s Day. I wish you all a day filled with love and joy.
