Dum Spiro Ti Amo September 6, 2010

150px-Carlo_Crivelli_052Amy and I have been chatting it up in Latin lately:

The Bishop Wears Italian Leather.

As is often the case when we focus our attention on a topic of interest, the Universe pipes up with additional information for us to absorb.

While at the market on Saturday, Amy came across frame bearing a delightful expression to share with our loved ones:

Dum Spiro Ti Amo . . .

If you want to order the frame in charcoal, cream, or green, visit Cedar Mountain Handmade Gifts:

The story of Cedar Mountain starts 28 years ago on the west coast of
British Columbia, Canada. Founded by Don and Suzanne Zacharias,
Cedar Mountain is a company committed to quality, innovation and
humor.  Cedar Mountain is situated on Saltspring Island, a place renowned for its natural beauty and artisan community.

Here, Don and Suzanne found creative inspiration and a home to raise their family, while enjoying all that the island lifestyle has to offer: the great outdoors, local markets, and a place where jeans and gumboots  are appropriate attire for any occasion.

Away from the bustle of the city, the folks at Cedar Mountain continue to invent clever and fun products which are all hand crafted in our backyard studio.

In the meantime, wherever inspiration takes you, remember to keep breathing!

Aah . . . that’s better!

Latin: Amo, amas…amatit again 🙂

A Latin scholar who conjugates love. ; )

I love the saying and will steal it 🙂

You should!

Perfect to whisper in the grocer’s ear while resisting George Clooney’s advances. ; )

George Clooney. . .him too, although if he weren’t so short it wold be James McAvoy for me! When I was a girl, it was Paul McCartney…but he belonged to everybody else, too. Still think I’d have been his perfect match, but I have Ashley, and really, it doesn’t get any better than that! I’ll be whispering that in his ear as soon as he comes back into the room!

Another story: When Ashley’s grandmother was in grade school, she took Latin. He older brother was drilling her on verb conjugation, with which she was getting extremely tired! So after saying Hic, Haec, Hoc, etc., for the umpteenth time, she finally threw down her pencil and said “hic, haec hoc, ahickum, aheckum, ahokum! She was a dear sweet lady – lived to be 101½!

Love this quote!

Thanks, Paula

Sounds like a magic spell: hic, haec, hoc, ahickum, aheckum, ahokum! {{poof!}}

You and the others can have Paul McCartney ~ I only had eyes for George Harrison.

4. Paula - September 6, 2010

Actually, I did give up on Paul when I realized the futility of my quest. I switched to Ringo, because I realized I stood a better chance with him! (Still makes me blush to admit that inanity!)

How fickle! I remained loyal to George as long as he breathed.

Paula - September 6, 2010

“C’est moi! c’est moi! I’m forced to admit!” (to quote Frederick Loewe).

Hey, Nancy, what a neat surprise. I phoned Suzanne and told her I wanted to send her your link. Done. You’ve presented one of our local talents very well, Nancy. Much appreciated.

Yay! Supporting artists and artisans is FUN! And people are LOVING the quote.

Thanks for sharing it with me.
