A lovely quote

"O how I long to keep the world from narrowing in on me, and to look at things bigly and kindly!"
-William Morris

Isn't that good Grace. I love the word Bigly. He seems to have been of this world but compassionate too.

That is so true. No wonder this artist's work communicates a beauty that is so rare and to this day in my opinion, unmatched! Anita

Now I want to incorporate the word bigly into my everyday vernacular. Do you think I can do it without seeming silly?

I did chuckle to myself when the Blogger spellcheck underlined "Bigly" with red. :)
