A Red Day

Are you wearing red today?  I have on a red knit top to show my support for a movement of the heart by women for women.  Want to learn more about preventing heart attacks and strokes?  Head over to the American Heart Association's site, Go Red for Women. 

February is all about hearts and the color red, two of my favorite things.  The heart stands for all the good things in life:  Love, romance, relationships...with yourself and others, compassion, joy, charity, affection, body and soul.  Passionate red, blood red, crimson, and scarlet, oh yes...the color red evokes emotion.  

   "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.
They must be felt with the heart."
~ Helen Keller    


  1. such a lovely post and this quote is one of my favorites....barbara walters is doing a special tonight i am looking forward to, based on her recent open-heart surgery.

    have a wonderful weekend filled with all your heart desires. xoxo

  2. Thank you, sweet Linda. I'm not much of a "special" watcher and rarely tune in to Barbara Walters, but I just might tonight.

  3. I don't wear red often, but when I do, I seem to feel more lively!
    I will follow your link on heart health, being of a certain age causes me to be very conscious of such things.

  4. Hi Jeri...oh how I love the color red and you're so just adds pizazz and life to a body.

    Take care!

  5. What a fantastic quote you have chosen ... and I love the way in which the pinks blend together in the photograph.

    I often wear red and my sister always wears red. However only my shoes are red today - my favourite shoes .... and I have just donned a pink cardigan to keep warm this evening (an old but cosy one).

    I shall think pink this weekend, and wear red!

  6. Dear Theresa O,
    Adore the quote by Helen Keller. I'm writing that one down. Also your photo is sublime!!

    Happy month celebration "heart"!!

  7. Hi! I just checked in on my blog and noticed that you had stopped by and were going to promote 'Wear Red' day....thank you so much for participating! This is a lovely post and the quote is sooooo perfectly suited to the cause.
