I have fallen. I have fallen and I continue to do so each day. I have not learned how to keep my feet steady. I have not mastered the ability to stand upright. I have not taught my legs to stop shaking. But I will try and try and try.

Sometimes love comes with mistakes and heartaches.

Keep reading. Read during your break at work, before bed, on the bus, in the waiting room. Read at the table, in the lunchroom.
Make time.
You won’t regret it.

The key is to NOT stop. Consistency (even if you are struggling) is how you will reach the finish line. Trust the process.

The Library of Nicholas II, tucked away in a corner of the Winter Palace which is now the home of the Государственный Эрмитаж.

This is my favourite room at the Hermitage – there are so many (many) opulent and beautiful rooms here, but this one is one of the smallest and quietest and, in a way, the most thoughtful and carefully crafted in its atmosphere.
