A NOTE FROM MEL
MY HEART BEATS to the Rhythm of Love
Belle Amour peeps!!
The words “I Love You” spoken in moments of genuine appreciation, wonder or caring arise from something perfectly pure within us — the capacity to open ourselves and say yes without reserve. Such moments of pure openheartedness bring us as close to natural perfection as we come in this life. The radiant yes of the heart is perfect like the sun in bringing all things to life nourishing all that is truly human. — John Welwood
