H is a shape too

I love Hearts.
They make me smile; feel Happy, Humble, Hopeful.
They make me feel calm on the inside; balanced.
People who know me well know this.
People who don't know me well soon learn this.

This ancient Heart was spotted whilst visiting the islands' palace gardens.

My favourite cheese board
Made with love...wood from the knysna forest in South Africa

metal Hearts with love birds
metal Hearts hanging on a Church pew at a friend's wedding
metal wire pebble filled Heart hanging in the garden

circular Hearts
slatted Hearts 

a mosaic Heart
a precious gift that graces my bathroom

I love how Hearts can even be found in Nature

"Your body is free but your heart is in prison.
To release your heart, you simply reverse the process which locked it up.
First you begin to listen to messages from your heart - messages you may have been ignoring since childhood.
Next you must take the daring, risky step of expressing your heart in the outside world...
As you learn to live by Heart, every choice you make will become another way of telling your story...
It is the way you were meant to exist.
If you stop to listen, you'll realize that your heart has been telling you so all along."
